Mayacamas Estate vineyards are carved from a second growth forest at about 1,100 feet elevation. Our southwest facing vineyards in the Mayacamas Mountains provide a distinctive "terroir" for our wines. In total, we have about 16 acres of mountain vineyards. On the Mayacamas Estate we began vineyard development in 1990 under the guiding hand of Napa Valley vineyard management legend, Laurie Wood. From 1998 to 2011, our vineyards were managed by Frank Leeds of Leeds-Pesch Organic Vineyard Consulting, a true pioneer in organic farming in the Napa Valley.
Cassis, dusty dark chocolate covered blueberries, black olives and dried herbs on the nose. The palate is fruit forward with cassis and layered red and blue fruits. The wine is soft and juicy on the entry and is followed by chewy tannins in the mid palate and a lick of sweet oak tannin on the finish. This wine rewards cellaring for up to 10 years
