Our family grows and produces a handful of very small parcels of wines from western Marin County, Oakville (Napa Valley), Santa Lucia Highlands and other vineyards across California's most scenic and celebrated winegrowing regions. As stewards of the land, and to ensure suberb quality and style, our wines are sustainably or organically farmed and we produce only about 15 barrels (about 375 cases) of each wine. Each of our wines boasts its own label, depending on their growing appellation: Superbly mature and well-drained sites on east-side of Oakville AVA, next door to Screaming Eagle, down the road from Rudd & Joseph Phelps? Backus Vineyard; Exemplary sustainable farming practices provided dense clusters with perfect flavor and maturity; Classic Bordelaise winemaking (blended varietals, new French oak, egg-white fining) partnered with beautiful Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon provides a spectacular result.
Made in a balanced and graceful style, this light-bodied red comes from vineyards in both Oak Knoll and Oakville. Tart cherry, plum and coconut shavings are supported by light oak and firm tannins. The finish is complex and spicy.?VIRGINIE BOONE
