Compare our Cabernet Vineyards
Two historic places make very different wines.
Holbrook Mitchell is a hillside Vineyard located less than a mile from Elyse, up on the Yountville AVA hills.
Holbrook Mitchell is comprised of sedimentary, gravelly alluvial earth with rock.
Mountainside Distressed Grapes
Vines struggle in Holbrook Mitchell's shallow dirt to produce low yields of complex berries.
Cool breezes and fog from San Pablo Bay foster long times on the vine, perfect for complex, age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
Planted first in 1880, Morisoli Vineyard located is at the dead center of the Rutherford Bench's alluvial fan.
This famously "dusty" dirt is a harmonic convergance of ancient ocean floor, volcanic activity, and bedrock upthrust from seismic activity.
Cabernet Vineyard Perfection
Morisoli Vineyard is located in the center of Rutherford Bench — some of the best dirt for growing Cabernet Sauvignon in the entire world.
Morisoli's warm weather combined with gentle afternoon breezes fosters a long growing season, which creates some of Napa's most complex Cabernets.
