The fruit for this wine comes from both our sustainably farmed vineyard in Rutherford, and from local Napa Valley vineyards, with over half of it being sourced from the St. Helena and Rutherford appellations. Each vineyard block was harvested and made into an individual lot representing that block. The wines were pressed off the skins from 10 to 30 days after crushing. Blending generally takes place between January and April of the year following harvest. Bottled in June 2018.
