The Napa Valley in springtime. Vines have leafed out and are a bright fresh green.

All of the Merlot grapes and the majority of the Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc for this wine come from the Schweitzer Vineyard in the Stags Leap District, Napa Valley. Both the vineyard and the AVA are renowned for their purity of fruit and make up the core of this wine, which is then accentuated with bright, juicy fruit from Los Carneros.
