Our Cabernet block is planted at the bottom of our hillside estate in the richest soil on the Don Raffaele Vineyard. The vineyard slopes southward with rows oriented from east to west, permitting the sun to cast its rays directly on the vines for most of the day. Its soils are composed of gravelly loam and alluvial clay, which create interesting complexity. The 2015 growing season was one of the driest and warmest on record. Winter rains fell mostly in December. The warm, dry weather led to an early bud-break, and we were fortunate to avoid any frost damage. Cool temperatures in May resulted in a lower crop size in our vineyard and throughout Napa Valley. Summer temperatures were mostly hot yet consistent, and kept our season on an advanced schedule, but with proper heat management, resulted in another very high-quality vintage – Napa Valley’s fourth in a row.
