A rotating collection of special, coveted selections re-released from our library in very limited quantities.
A unique half-bottle format of a 2009 vintage release of Cabernet Sauvignon from our Library. Inspired by the complexity and style of Bordeaux’s cooler-climate wines, Signature Cabernet Sauvignon exemplifies how meticulous farming in southern Napa Valley’s fog-influenced districts and hillsides results in powerful, personality-driven Cabernet Sauvignons with extraordinary character, depth, and poise.
Signature Pinot Noir is a vineyard-driven wine grown from a small four-acre parcel in one of the most cherished micro-regions in the Russian River Valley. We’ve had the privilege of sourcing from this unique site since 2003. Ideally suited for Pinot Noir, the predominant soil type is Goldridge, derived from an ancient inland sea that slowly emptied into the Pacific Ocean. Its excellent drainage and low soil fertility allow us to create a balanced vineyard ecosystem yielding exceptional, high-quality fruit without irrigation. The vineyard’s gently sloping southeastern exposure combined with 35+ year vine age yield poised, complex and age-worthy Pinot Noir.
Through decades of experimentation, we have refined our craft of blending exemplary lots from dynamic vineyard sites selected to complement our core Southern Napa Valley estate vineyards on Mount Veeder, in Oak Knoll and south of Stag’s Leap. When assembling the 2015 blends, the virtues of old-vine Malbec grown from our Oak Knoll estate and by our partner Larkmead Vineyards were too numerous to count, compelling us to craft Signature Malbec, a rare, solitary pursuit.
