|Information on the Wine|

All Jarvis wines are produced from estate vineyards, located four miles to the east of the city of Napa, in the beautifully rugged mountains between Mt. George and Milliken Canyon at the southeastern end of the Napa Valley. The vineyards are planted in gently sloping meadows one thousand feet above the valley floor. As the cool maritime air passes over the Carneros flats and begins flowing into the valley, it falls about seven degrees in temperature for the thousand feet of vertical rise. As such, the vineyards tend to be cooler by several degrees than the famous nearby Carneros region! These cooler temperatures allow a long "hang time," permitting a long, slow fruit maturation for maximum flavor and concentration at harvest.
1995 provided us with a nice long growing season. Warm temperatures through the end of October were moderated by the cool temperatures of our location providing our grapes a long “hang-time” for maximum ripeness and complexity. From this spectacular fruit, Dimitri Tchelistcheff, our winemaker, has crafted perhaps our best Cabernet Sauvignon to date... - Winemaker notes (1995 vintage)
