About The Vineyard
“Our renowned State Lane Vineyard features a unique diversity of soils, the result of a century’s old alluvial fan which is comprised of gravel, clay loam and ancient costal deposits. This soil composition is idyllic for the varietals we have planted here.
Located between the warmer up-valley climate and the cooling maritime influence of the San Francisco Bay to the south, our State Lane Vineyard traditionally sees an extended growing season ensuring wines that offer finesse and balance connected by vibrant, energetic tannins.” – Christi Coors Ficeli, Vintner
“We are proud to bring you the purist expression of our State Lane Vineyard, where we nurture fruit of intense flavor, balance and character. We carefully craft this wine for you, our friends and family, to enjoy one glass at a time.
From a warm/hot growing season this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon features fruit from all 5 blocks that we have on the State Lane Vineyard. Each block was harvested and fermented separately. And then aged in barrels that specifically highlight and enhance each wine’s characters. After aging diligent barrel selection led to the composition of the final blend for this wine.” – Christi Coors Ficeli, Vintner
