Each vineyard has their own personality and nuance that show through in every vine and every grape. This single-vineyard collection best reflects the characteristics of each unique vineyard represented. Our philosophy is to make elegant, intensely flavored, and well-balanced wines that showcase the “terroir” of each unique vineyard site. In this way, we can experience the flavor and aromas of the vineyard itself.

♦ One bottle of 2019 Voyager Vineyard, Sangiovese, this limited-release, single vineyard Sangiovese reveals lush aromas of dark cherry and baking spice leading to juicy dark fruits and cassis on the palate. Bolder than our traditional Napa Valley Sangiovese, this classic Italian variety excellent to pair with hearty Italian fare. Located on the Silverado Trail just south of the town of Yountville, the Sangiovese fruit from this vineyard tends to exhibit wild berry and spice aromas classic to its variety, yet the intensity and texture of the wine more closely resembles a fine Cabernet Sauvignon.
