Clone 7, known as the Concannon or Wente clone, is a long-time workhorse of California Cabernet production. This clone has been known to produce as much as 12 tons per acre in Napa, although it generally produces between 6 8 tons per acre. Originally sourced from the La Fatta Vineyard south of St. Helena, it is speculated that this selection may have come from the de Latour nursery at Beaulieu.
