The Trailside Vineyard rests on a gentle lower slope of the eastern Rutherford Bench and is comprised of a diverse patchwork representing almost all soils found in the Napa Valley. It has been the grape source for some of the most storied wines produced in Napa Valley. We are honored to now be the sole proprietor of this historically renowned vineyard.
The Palate of the 2014 Trailside vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon expresses the savory winter herbs of English Thyme and Bay Laurel that Trailside has become synonymous with. The long cool growing season created a structure of bright fresh acidity and a certain lift in the wines that we aspire to achieve each year.
