This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon represents the best block from our sustainably farmed Mt. Brave estate vineyard on Mount Veeder
The vineyard located above the fogline, with elevations up to 1,800 feet, ideal for ripening and tannin development
Native-yeast fermented; bottled unfined and unfiltered for the finest expression of mountain terroir
Christopher Carpenter, Winemaker
I believe in maximum attention in the vineyard and minimal intervention in the winery.
BS in Biology from University of Illinois
I began as a harvest enologist at Domaine Carneros, then a viticulturist intern at Domaine Chandon as I was pursuing an MS in viticulture and enology at UC Davis. During my last year at UC Davis, I spent six months making wine at Tenute Antinori in Tuscany, Italy. Following graduation, I joined the winemaking team at the Cardinale estate as enologist and in 2000 became the winemaker for Lokoya. A year later, I was appointed winemaker for Cardinale and in 2005 for La Jota Vineyard Co.
