Garvey Home Ranch

Appellation: Rutherford

Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon, Clone 4 on 101-14 rootstock

Soil: Rocky, gravelly loam, 30-60% grade

Pruning, Trellis and Orientation: Cordon on VSP, Northeast-Southwest

Certified CCOF Organic Vineyard

The Garvey Home Ranch is an organically farmed vineyard situated on the Rutherford Bench at the base of the Mayacamas Mountain range. The Hillside Block is low-yielding and produces loose clusters with small berries. The wine from this parcel is classic Rutherford: rich and concentrated with intense black currant flavors.

Konrad Vineyard

Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon, Clone 377 on 1103 Paulson rootstock

Soil: Bressa-Dibble complex, 10-30% grade

Pruning, Trellis and Orientation: Cordon on VSP, Northeast-Southwest

2014 will be our first vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Dr. Konrad Vineyard. This 1/2 acre parcel is situated high on Mount Veeder at 1170 feet above sea level. Mount Veeder is the largest AVA within Napa Valley, but its rugged nature has limited production to just 1.3% of Napa Valley grapes. Due to the scarcity of plantable sites only about 1,000 acres out of 25 square miles are planted to grapes. Yields from the mountain vineyards are exceptionally low (usually about 2 tons/acre for Cabernet Sauvignon) – about half the Napa Valley average.

Clos Valmi Vineyard

Appellation: Yountville

Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon, Clone 7 on 110R rootstock

Soil: Hambright rock-Outcrop complex and Bale clay loam, 10-30% grade

Pruning, Trellis and Orientation: Cordon on VSP, North-South

In 2012 we harvested 2 tons of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Clos Valmi Vineyard in Yountville. Situated on a gentle slope leading to the Vaca Mountain range, the vines are low-yeilding and produce a mountain style Cabernet Sauvignon with massive structure and extracted raspberry flavors.

Muscatine Vineyard

Appellation: Soda Canyon

Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon, Clone 377 on 1103 Paulson rootstock

Soil: Aiken Loam, 10-30% grade

Pruning, Trellis and Orientation: Cane on VSP, North-South

The Muscatine Vineyard is a 1/2 acre parcel tucked away in the rugged Soda Canyon at about 800 feet above sea level. Expertly farmed by Tom Muscatine using sustainable practices, we harvest about 1/2 ton of Cabernet Sauvignon from this  vineyard.  While the Muscatine Cabernet only comprises about 12% of our production, it has a big impact on our wines providing a solid core of concentrated black currant flavors with structured tannins.

Mee Lane Vineyard

Appellation: Rutherford

Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon, See Clone on 039-16 rootstock

Soil: Pleasanton loam

Pruning, Trellis and Orientation: Cane on VSP, Northwest-Southeast

Certified CCOF Organic Vineyard

Planted to the See Clone in 2000 and organically farmed by Mark Neal, the Rutherford Dust Vineyard on Mee Lane creates the classic expression of Cabernet Sauvignon grown in these deep mid-valley soils.   The wines from this vineyard have huge aging potential and show black cherry and cassis flavors encased in very firm tannins.

Bagnato Family Vineyard

Appellation: Rutherford

Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon,Clone 337 on 3309C rootstock

Soil: Pleasanton loam

Pruning, Trellis and Orientation: Cordon on VSP, Northwest-Southeast

The Bagnato Family Vineyard is only 0.2 acres and is meticulously farmed by hand. We harvested less than 1/2 ton of this classically styled Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon in 2015.  The fruit shows wild berry and spicy bramble characteristics that will add a lot of dimension to our 2015 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon.
