Yountville Wine

To the south of Oakville and comprised virtually entirely of valley floor land, Yountville is the southernmost end of the historic vineyards of Napa Valley. The climate here changes significantly due to the direct maritime influence from the San Pablo Bay as well as the effests of the swampy marsh soils that begin just south of the town of Yountville. While the soils to the north of town are similar to those of Oakville, though perhaps a bit more compact and finely grained, they are even more diverse and layered with more heavy clays representing centuries of the decay and wash of the upper valley and hillsides. This is a transitory area where the Cabernet dominant vineyards of the north yield to the Chardonnay and Pinot dominated vineyards of the southern edges of the valley.

    One characteristic that was expected and favourable, is "sweet" on the first bite. This promising start however turns to dry and oaky rather quickly. The second sip was searching for that sweet, which was refound, but lost again amounst the dry wood. Ah well, not my cup of, but if you're looking for dynamics with a chew of dry... Read More

  • Depending on traffic, shipping grapes from up near Calistoga to Yountville could take 1/2 an hour or more.  Lots of grapes have to get trucked an hour or so, although it's far from the best thing.  Some winemakers will contract with someone closer or use a custom crush facility nearer the source--Bell does this with wines they make from Oregon g...
