Description: As a winegrower, every year we strive to produce the finest fruit possible in our vineyards. Successes in the vineyard usually start with the intense planning that goes into vineyard development. Long before the vines are fruitful, decisions relating to the use of proper rootstocks for the vineyard site, varietal and clonal material, vine spacing, and trellising were all debated in hopes that the right combination will produce the best wines.

Varietal Definition
Cabernet Sauvignon:
Cabernet Sauvignon is the most widely planted and significant among the five dominant varieties in France’s Bordeaux region, as well as the most successful red wine produced in California. Though it was thought to be an ancient variety, recent genetic studies at U.C. Davis have determined that Cabernet Sauvignon is actually the hybrid offspring of Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc. Cabernet Sauvignon berries are small with black, thick and very tough skin. This toughness makes the grapes fairly resistant to disease and spoilage and able to withstand some autumn rains with little or no damage. It is a mid to late season ripener. These growth characteristics, along with its flavor appeal have made Cabernet Sauvignon one of the most popular red wine varieties worldwide.
