Calistoga AVA, Napa Valley
Harvested 10/9/2018 Brix: 24.7, pH: 3.91, TA: .66
The Calistoga AVA is known for having the highest concentration of volcanic soils and the biggest diurnal shift in the Napa Valley. Some of the most famous Cabernets in California are grown here, including Chateau Montelena , which is located just up the river from the site of our fruit. The vineyard’s proximity to the river results in a combination of volcanic and alluvial granitic soils, which are well draining and highly infertile, the ideal soil type for growing Cabernet Sauvignon.
