Immaculate Vineyard - Coombsville

As the 16th most recently approved sub-appellation of Napa Valley, Coombsville offers a cool climate which can support the growth of Cabernet Sauvignon to its full ripeness, offering a consistently long growing season, thus ensuring full flavor and structural development of the fruit. At roughly 2 acres, Immaculate (formerly ‘Inherit The Sheep’) was planted in 2000, at a relatively high density of six feet between the rows, and 4 feet between the T-vines. This provides competition among the vines themselves, creating high levels of concentration and character in the berries. Fresh black current and a mineral-driven character of wet stone mark the appellation’s Cabernet Sauvignon. These wines tend to be structured and fresh, with aromas of rose petal and lavender, along with white pepper, influenced highly by the volcanic ash, and rocky alluvial soils running west and down from the adjacent Vaca mountain range.
