microclimates

Our mountain canyon creates a diverse weather pattern. Cooling afternoon breezes from the ocean on the West mix with the Napa Valley heat on the East. Diamond Creek meanders through our vineyards and separates them into three distinct soil types; volcanic, gravelly and red rock.  Our cabernets include a small amount of merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

Typically, the harvest of our vineyards takes place over a month period. Because we want to pick each section of the vineyard at its optimum ripeness, we have as many as 15 to 20 different pickings. As the wines age in barrels we taste their development. If the barrels from one pick of a vineyard are particularly distinctive, we will bottle them separately as a microclimate wine
