Harvest 2015 was one of our earliest years on record. The persistent California drought and a cool spring during bloom led to low yields in the vineyard and an early bud break. Careful irrigation and canopy management were key and allowed our growers to maximize quality and create beautifully ripe and balanced fruit. The wines resulting from the 2015 vintage are some of our favorite to date.
This Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon includes fruit from the Sequoia Grove Estate Vineyard, previously included in the Historic Vines Cabernet, as well as a blend of grapes from our Tonella Estate Vineyard and a selection of our other high caliber Napa Valley vineyard sources.
