APPELLATION

Yountville District AVA

  • Nestled in the heart of Napa Valley, between Oakville to the north and Oak Knoll to the south
  • The warm climate is moderated by daily cooling fog and breezes from the San Pablo Bay
  • Summer temperatures reach low 90s and drop to mid-50s at night
  • Reds grown here are elegant & supple, with complex finely-knit tannins
