2009 Big Ranch Cuvée, 2009 Merlot, 2009 Right Bank Blend, 2009 Cabernet Franc & 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Ready for Release
Greetings again from the Napa Valley! Summer of 2012 will be remembered as one that was fantastic for premium grape growing. It has been full of warm days and cool nights with just the right amount of heat to ripen the grapes. As we get ready to start harvest we release our 2009 Bordeaux varietals for you to enjoy.
The change of season also announces the release of our newest wines; 2009 Big Ranch Cuvée, 2009 Big Ranch Vineyard® Merlot, 2009 Big Ranch Vineyard® Cabernet Franc and our 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon. In addition, we have added a new wine to our lineup, 2009 Right Bank Blend. This is a blend or Merlot and Cabernet Franc with is a typical blend in the Right Bank region of Bordeaux.
In addition to our newest wines we have some small quantities of our 2009 Big Ranch Vineyard®Syrah, 2008 Cuvée, 2008 Big Ranch Vineyard®Merlot, and our 2009 Zinfandel, all ready to move from our cellar to yours.
At the winery we have just completed bottling our 2010 Bordeaux varietals, (Cabernet, Merlot & Cuvée) and getting ready to bring in this years harvest. The first grapes to arrive will be our Sauvignon Blanc. Again we sold out of both our Sauvignon Blanc and Ruby Tuesday Rosé by the beginning of summer so again we're increasing our production.
Thank you for your ongoing support, encouragement and patronage. If you have any questions or would like to visit the vineyard please contact us. We would be happy to discuss our wines with you.

Beginning in 1998 when we purchased our property on Big Ranch Road in Napa, we held a vision that very special wines and memories could be created in this location. Since then over 20,000 vines of Merlot, Syrah,, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon have been planted, tended, nurtured, harvested, crushed and coaxed into fine wine.
The vineyard is located in the Oak Knoll Appellation of the Napa Valley which is known for its' slightly cooler climate and clay soils. This environment produces ultra-premium Merlot and Syrah used in many of Napa Valley's most sought after wines.
Today, while we still sell over 95% of our grapes to other premium wineries we also produce very limited quantities of ultra-premium wine. These wines are produced using only the best materials and practices in search of creating wines that reflect a full bodied style that express the best attributes of the land.
