At the northwest edge of Napa Valley, Rockerbox Vineyard sits at the foot of Mount Saint Helena where the headwaters of the Napa River begin. The 60-acre vineyard is cradled in a natural canyon, and Cabernet vines root deeply in the rocky, gravelly soils to produce dense red and blue fruit character.

Harvest Notes

  • This 60-acre site is low-vigor, forcing vines to create deep roots
  • Veraison was three weeks late, followed by a temperate summer
  • Care was taken to fine tune crop load to maximize color and concentration at harvest time
  • 11 barrels of Cabernet were hand-selected for this limited bottling
