This vineyard is on a West-facing slope, above the fog line, on the Northern ridge of the Atlas Peak AVA. The Hambright and Guenoc soils, are dominated by red volcanic material with lots of flatrock, providing exceptional drainage to the hillside vineyard.
2016 METEOROLOGICAL DATA: Napa’s third consecutive warm winter prompted an early start to the growing season. March frosts slightly thinned what would become a warm, healthy vintage.
