Our wines reflect the unique characteristics of each vintage and of the Rutherford growing district. It begins in the vineyard—as we use only a small percentage of the grapes grown on our estate, the fruit that is perfect to the eye and loaded with flavor. We hire harvest crews chosen for their selective picking techniques, and then we hand sort to insure we are using nothing but the finest fruit. Using gentle, gravity-fed systems in the winery, a judicious use of oak barrel aging in the finest French oak, and daily attention to the wines during aging, we produce the finest wines possible in small, select quantities. Our total production is just 6,400 cases annually, and all of our wines are 100% estate grown and bottled.
