We handcraft big and beautiful single vineyard cabs from some of the most opulent valley floor and mountain fruit Napa has to offer. We have also added a delicious Sonoma Coast Chardonnay in 2017. Over eight vintages the production has grown to a modest 350 case annual production of five different wines. 

 

Napa Valley | Stagecoach Vineyard | Rutherford G3 Vineyard

Our Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are sourced from the best Napa Valley vineyards such as Stagecoach Vineyard (Atlas Peak), and the famous G3 Rutherford Vineyard.

Stagecoach Vineyard - Stagecoach Vineyard is rich in story, rock and perennial high scoring wines. One of the largest, most beautiful and highly acclaimed vineyards from which we source, Stagecoach climbs between 900 and 1700 feet up the southern face of Pritchard Hill to Atlas Peak.

The site is planted to a wide range of varietals and rootstocks and features several distinct microclimates. In 2014, 2015 and 2016 we sourced our Cabernet Sauvignon from the small, steep Block 7 near the top of the site. This section is lower yielding than most of the vineyard. This south-facing fruit consistently produces slow ripening high-quality fruit. In 2017 onwards we are sourcing our Cabernet Sauvignon from the Pritchard Hill section of the vineyard.

G3 Vineyard - Our Rutherford, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is from one of the most sought after vineyards in the valley.  One of the most historic and sought after properties in the world – G3, as we call it, was originally owned and planted by Thomas Rutherford in 1895. Georges de Latour, founder of Beaulieu, purchased the site in 1928 and it became the home to BV’s Rutherford Cabernets made by elite winemaker, Andre Tchelistcheff, throughout the ‘60’s and ‘70’s. The site was then purchased by Beckstoffer Vineyards in 1988. Andy, Dave and team have replanted using modern clones, trellising and spacing to yield optimum quality. Wines from this field consistently score in the high 90s.

Fruit from this vineyard is of unique quality and has rich valley floor flavor. Opulent, rich and full-bodied with black currant, cedar, cassis, black-licorice and cherry complimented by earthy flavors associated with Rutherford Dust. 

 

Sonoma Coast | Rodgers Creek Vineyard

Rodgers Creek Vineyard is a 297 acre ranch (83.5 acres planted) sitting as a crown jewel on the very eastern edge of the Petaluma Gap. Planted in 2001, the vines have an east-west orientation, allowing the canopy to protect the fruit from steady winds on the hill. The site is about 600 feet above sea level and is so uniquely located that the steep, terraced blocks get plenty of afternoon sun and wind. Constant wind and fog from the east meet temperate weather from the Bay, providing us with later ripening Chardonnay. The yields from this mountain site are just around 2.5 tons per acre. The views from the vineyard are incredible, a clear day reveals 180 degrees views from Napa to San Francisco, Marin and Petaluma
