Our Four Iconic Cabernet Vineyards

World Class Sonoma County Quality

Among our 12 estate vineyards across 1,158 acres in Sonoma County, four stand out among the rest as truly iconic. Spanning the entirety of Alexander Valley, these vineyard sites allow us to showcase the diversity of style and world class quality of Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon.

Cabernet Sauvignon thrives on all four of these vineyard sites, each of which producing a uniquely different style of wine. Many factors impact these varying styles, most notably – temperature, climate, topography, and elevation. We have the ability to make pure forms of Cabernet from each site while also crafting blends that marry these sites together to create entirely different but complete and balanced wines.

We proudly craft six different styles of Sonoma County Cabernet, each of which takes you on a journey through this world-renowned winegrowing region. Sonoma County offers a rich assortment of microclimates, soil, and varietal diversity, making it the ideal place to inspire creativity in the vineyard and cellar.
