This vineyard is on a west-facing slope, above the fog line, on the northern ridge of the Atlas Peak AVA, we farm Cabernet Sauvignon clones 412, 4, 8 and 337C planted mostly to roostocks 3309C and 1103P. The soils here, Hambright and Guenoc soils are dominated by red volcanic material with lots of flat rock, providing exceptional drainage to the hillside vineyard.
2019 meteorological data: Northern California experienced another cool and wet winter which kept the vines dormant through late March/ Early April. The springtime brought a mix of heat spells followed by cool and wet weather. Our initial predictions were for a later harvest, but the warm summer months hastened the growing cycle of the vines. Harvest started for us August 14th with Rosé of Pinot Noir and ended with our Atlas West Cabernet Sauvignon in mid-October.
soil type: Hambright and Guenoc
