1974 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Our vineyards behind Jade Lake are prinarily devoted to new Cabernet plantings. Beginning with the 1974 vintage we will have a separate appellation for the grapes harvested from our property. The "Napa" appellation of estate grown grapes will eventually replace our "Sonoma" appellation.
