    Vineyards and Vintage
    Napa Valley vineyards are intentionally farmed at lower yields, bringing only the very best grapes to harvest. The 2012 vintage is sourced from an especially abundant crop of ripe, flavorful grapes. Such rich flavor goes hand-in-hand with the notable “Rutherford Dust,” an earthy finish resulting from the volcanic gravel, loam and sand soils of the valley. One of Napa Valley’s most highly sought terroirs, the Rutherford American Viticultural Area (AVA) is also one of Napa Valley’s smallest wine appellations
