Napa Carneros’ clay loam soils (Haire and Diablo series) and cool marine climate are well-suited to ripening Merlot grapes slowly, as they allow for full development of varietal expression and soft, silky tannins. But this wine also shows that certain select sites in the Carneros AVA yield stellar Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. This fruit is sourced from a hillside vineyard in the warmer, northern part of Napa Carneros. The southwest-facing slope has ideal exposure for developing ripe, rich flavors.
