Winemaker Notes

Pine Mountain Vineyards sits on the upper western flank of Pine Mountain, at an elevation 0f 2,200 to 3,000 feet. The high elevation farming reliably deliver fruit intense in color and flavor. The micro-climate of the vineyard exhibits all the characteristics associated with high-elevation viticulture. These include cooler daytime and warmer nighttime temperatures than in the valley, longer sunlight hours, and cooling oceanic breezes. Ideal for Cabernet Sauvignon of great character.
