The Gemstone Vineyard is a winemaker's delight.
Situated in the Yountville AVA on the Rector Creek alluvial
fan, it contains a diverse selection of Cabernet Sauvignon,
Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Petite Verdot grapes with numerous
clonal selections within these varietals. Each of these grapes
are vinified and kept separately for evaluation prior to blending.
Only those components judged to be stand-alone quality are
used in the blend, which results in a wine of phenomenal depth,
richness and varietal character. The close collaboration of
vineyard and winery is at the heart of our winemaking philosophy.
