Vineyard Notes

Huichica Hills — Located off of Duhig Rd, in the Napa Carneros AVA, this beautiful vineyard resides on gently sloping hillside with 8x4 spacing. The vines are planted in sedimentary clay loam and experience the cool marine breezes from the San Pablo Bay. The 2018 blend is 72% from the Hyde clone which had been originally selected from the Wente vineyards in Livermore, it is a fruit forward clone with golden delicious apple, spicy apple, nutmeg and muscat with citrus overlay; and 28% from clone 809, a French clone also known as the Musqué clone, which is known for flavors of muscat with texture of creamy chardonnay.
