2010 Big Ranch Cuvée, 2010 Merlot, 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, Oak Knoll District, 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon & 2008 Port Ready for Release
Greetings again from the Napa Valley! Summer of 2013 will be remembered as one that was fantastic for premium grape growing. The best in 5 years! 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 2010 Bordeaux varietals for you to enjoy.
The change of season also announces the release of our newest wines; 2010 Big Ranch Cuvée, 2010 Big Ranch Vineyard® Merlot, 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon and our 2008 Port. In addition, we have added a new wine to our lineup, 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, Oak Knoll District. This is the first wine produced from our friends' Mogambo vineyard and represents the finest Cabernet Sauvugnon we've ever produced. It is 100% single vineyard, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and aged 22 months in 100% new French oak barrels.
In addition to our newest wines we have some small quantities of our 2012 Ruby Tuesday Rosé all ready to move from our cellar to yours.
At the winery we are completing fermentation of our 2013 vintage and barreling them down to age. The vineyard is all harvested and prepared for a winter nap.
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 District 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 50% 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.
