The rolling hills of the Carneros American Viticultural Area straddle both sides of the southern Napa and Sonoma counties. These Syrah grapes are situated on the Napa County side, a few miles west of the city of Napa on Old Sonoma Road. Carneros is a varied appellation with many distinct microclimates, and this site is particularly unique. The vines are perched on a rocky west facing hill with optimal sun exposure throughout the growing season. This vineyard is also in the northern reaches of Carneros and benefits from a warmer growing season than the southern parts of the appellation closer to San Pablo Bay.
