Rockledge Cabernet Sauvignon the Rocks 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Winery: "Rockledge Vineyards is located 600 feet above the Napa Valley floor in the eastern part of the St Helena AVA. The vineyard’s slope is up to 25% and has a southwest exposure. Peter and Linda Snowden founded Rockledge in 1998, and hired winemaker Mike Hirby in 2003." "Mr. Hirby works with vineyard manager Steve DeLoera and consultant Doug Hill. The Cabernet Sauvignon vines are comprised of a variety of different clones grafted onto carefully selected rootstocks based on the soil and the desired effect." ""The Rocks" is made from the rocky soils of the Snowdens’ estate vineyard. It was aged in 90% new French oak barrels for 18 months." - Cal Wineries

Rockledge Vineyards:
High on the eastern slopes of Napa Valley just south of the town of St. Helena is a saddle covered with loose rocky soil that extends down the benchland. On this precipitous ledge the 12 acre Rockledge estate vineyard is perched. It's not that the rocks in our vineyard give off a lot of flavor. Their role is to take up space and deprive the vine of soil nutrients. Without struggle, there is no intensity. - Peter and Linda Snowden, Proprietors
