We farm a block of Cabernet Sauvignon clone 7 on the eastern side of Oakville in Napa Valley. The soils are deep with layers of sandy loam clay, gravel, and red earth. The red soils sre believed to be the result of an ancient avalanche that brought the iron-rich soils from the Vaca Mountains down to the valley floor.
2017 meteorological data: After much needed, record-breaking winter rains lingered into early Spring, the vines came out of dormancy in mid March. Wet soils and mild temperatures moved the vines through to veraison with ease, before several heat waves jumpstarted an early, quick harvest.
soil type: sandy loam clay, gravel, and red earth
