Production Notes
Our Estate West vineyard is a spectacular site with a warm south-facing slope perfect for growing red Bordeaux varieties. The rocky, porous volcanic soil challenges the vines. Yields are low, and the grapes are incredibly dark and flavorful. Cabernet Sauvignon thrives here. Our two acres of Carmenere were originally planted as an experiment, but it has become a key player in some of our blends.
