This wine represents the finest lots from the Reserve Vineyard on the Groth family’s Oakville Estate. The vineyard is a nearly 28-acre band with a disproportionately high amount of chert, a hard and compact sedimentary rock comprising quartz crystals and fossils.

The vineyard is sustainably farmed and became Napa Green/Fish Friendly Farming certified in 2014.
