Our Cabernet Sauvignon is from the Baldinelli Vineyard which was planted in 1972 on St. George rootstock. This is an old, low bearing, small berry/cluster clone. Yields are about 1-1 1/2 tons per acre. Our growing season is longer and cooler than what many might assume. It is comparable in many ways to the Howell Mountain region of the Napa Valley. We have warm days moderated by afternoon Delta breezes and cool night air from the High Sierra peaks just 50 miles to our East. Aging takes place for two years in 100% French Bordeaux barrels from Taransaud cooperage, 50% new.It was aged in bottle for an additional two years prior to its’ release.
