“dedicated to making premium Estate wines”
Our 50 acre estate vineyard is located in the heart of the Rutherford Appellation, one of Napa Valley's oldest grape-growing regions. In 1984, our ownership predecessors, Bill and Lila Jaeger, replanted the property to wine grapes. We purchased the original 40-acre vineyard, complete with its old, redwood barn, in 1994. The property extends east from Highway 29 down to the banks of the Napa River and is planted primarily to Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, with smaller blocks of Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Sauvignon Blanc. We later acquired a neighboring ten-acre parcel, which which we replanted exclusively to Cabernet Sauvignon, the signature Rutherford varietal. We also narrowed the vine rows and increased vine density, ensuring the fruit will produce wines of the greatest complexity possible. After purchasing the vineyard in 1994, we decided that we would convert the old redwood, board and batten barn that had been on the property since the prohibition era into our future winery. In 1997 we began the meticulous process of preserving and restoring this Napa Valley landmark. 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. 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.
