MELROSE VINEYARD | RUTHERFORD | NAPA VALLEY
Located on the northern edge of Rutherford, Melrose sits directly across the street from the beginning of the St. Helena AVA. Acquired by Beckstoffer in 1973, our block was replanted in 2013 using the same techniques and farming practices utilized at the company’s famed Heritage properties (To Kalon, Las Piedras, Dr. Crane, Missouri Hopper and Georges III). Despite being situated at the northern end of Rutherford, Melrose reveals characteristics more often associated with Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon. The heavier clay soils result in a more nuanced, reserved interpretation of the grape with a lush blend of red and black fruits and optimum balance of acidity to tannin.
BROKEN ROCK VINEYARD | NAPA VALLEY
Located 800 feet above the Silverado Trail on Atlas Peak, Broken Rock combines the great attributes of a hillside vineyard with the opulence typically found on the valley floor. This steep, rocky, westward facing vineyard is densely planted with 2,000 vines per acre and is known for world class Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. Broken Rock provides the fruit for some of Napa Valley’s more renown Bordeaux varietal red wines, and typically exhibit darker fruits, structure, and supple but firm tannins. With afternoon sun and sufficient night time cooling, Broken Rock produces wines of balance, intensity, and power combined with elegance and voluptuousness.
MORGAEN LEE VINEYARD | YOUNTVILLE | NAPA VALLEY
Located just outside the town of Yountville, Morgan Lee Vineyard thrives in this unique site’s cool, crisp mornings and warm, sunny afternoons. Planted north to south, the grapes are largely spaced for optimal sun exposure and increased protection from frost, allowing the Sauvignon Blanc grapes to flourish. Morgaen Lee produces satiny, crisp, and elegant wines combined with earthy flavors and mineral essence. They are typically layered with tropical fruit, melon, a touch of dry hay, and a hint of grapefruit on the nose and are consistently refined, elegant, and complex.
STAGECOACH VINEYARD® | NAPA VALLEY
Stagecoach Vineyard® climbs between 900 and 1,700 feet up the southern face of Atlas Peak and is used in many world class wines. We source Cabernet Franc grapes from one of the most sought-after, lower-yielding sections of the vineyard. The result is a wine of wonderful aromatics and rich fruit structured with elegance, soft berry, and minerality with light herbaceous notes, but integrating the power and presence expected from a mountain vineyard.
A2 VINEYARD | RUTHERFORD | NAPA VALLEY
A2, as we refer to it, is one of Napa Valley’s premiere heritage vineyards and one of the most historic and sought-after properties in the world. Located in the heart of Rutherford, this vineyard was originally planted by Mrs. Thomas Rutherford in 1895. In 1928, Georges de Latour, founder of Beaulieu Vineyard, purchased the vineyard where it became the source of the legendary BV Cabernets made by elite winemaker, Andre Tchelistcheff. In 1988, Beckstoffer Vineyards purchased the property and replanted it using modern clones, tighter spacing, and advanced trellising systems to yield optimum quality. Some of Napa Valley’s most acclaimed Cabernet Sauvignons are sourced from this vineyard, which produces elegant, rich, full bodied wines with black currant, cedar, cassis, black-licorice, and cherry along with dusty, earthy flavors.
ZINFANDEL | MOON MOUNTAIN DISTRICT | SONOMA COUNTY
Lauded as one of the single greatest sites anywhere, we source from this legendary vineyard on the southwest side of the Mayacamas Range. Originally planted in 1886, the vineyard was owned and managed by one family from 1938 until 2002. Today it continues to be the source of exceptional mountain grown Zinfandels. Remarkably, some of the original 140-year-old vines continue to deliver Zinfandel of unprecedented character year after year. The property stairsteps 1,300 feet above sea level in the red volcanic soils. This vineyard is in high demand and attracts a number of well-known producers who revere its complex Zinfandels that express raspberry, blackberry, and earthy hints of briar patch.
