The Gala Mountain Vineyard sits above the Napa Valley on the slopes of Mt. George, just east of the city of Napa. This northwest facing vineyard was planted in 1992 on rocky volcanic bedrock with sandy topsoil and is cooled by the constant breezes from the San Pablo Bay. The vines are well drained, deep rooting & produce small clusters, which lend to the structure of the wine. This six-acre vineyard was converted from organic to biodynamic farming in 2018 and is tended to by hand.

The wine was de-stemmed & fermented with its native yeasts in small open top fermenters and aged for sixteen months in neutral barrels.

This wine displays the charm & intensity of mountain Cabernet from the Napa Valley: aromas of red licorice, golden raspberries & sassafras. On the palate, ripe blackberry juice and black licorice.
