Winemaker's Notes:

Planted in 1984, Rock Cairn lies near the southern edge of the Oakvilleappellation, east of Highway 29 and north of the town of Yountville. This vineyardis named for the "cairns" or piles of rocks that were formed long ago when Indianstraversed the hills and would place a rock on the pile as an offering for safe passage.The dry-farmed site is comprised of deep, gravelly loam with a western exposure,and the vines produce very concentrated fruit late in the season. Nickel & Nickelselects grapes from nine acres of the vineyard.
