Baconbrook

There’s just no soil or water up there. That’s the way to describe the location of Baconbrook. This 2 ¾ acre Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard is located on a lower ridge of Spring Mountain overlooking the town of St. Helena in the Napa Valley. The soil, what little there is, is made up of broken chunks of ancient volcanic rock. Honestly, during the hot Napa Valley summers, the boys at Piña Vineyard Management would like to get more water on the vines, but it’s just not available. As a result, this “forced” deficit irrigation produces small berries of intense, dark color with incredibly strong flavors and sweet tannins that make Baconbrook wines long-term agers. We’re never going to have much of this mountain fruit from this miserly vineyard but oh, how we are excited about the little bit we do get.

Baconbrook, our home ranch, was planted in 2001. Its inaugural vintage was the 2004 Match Baconbrook Cabernet Sauvignon.

2010 Baconbrook Cabernet Sauvignon (750ml) MV-750-10-BB

It’s a rowdy youngster just come down from the hills of Spring Mountain; our 2010 Baconbrook is big, boisterous, and chock full of flavors of dark cherry fruit, tea leaves and baking spices. If you like them a bit rugged, it’s enjoyable now, but 3 to 5 years in the cellar will refine this wine into a sophisticated, complex, long-lived Cabernet, dressed up for the big city, but still true to the tiny mountain vineyard where it was born. 185 cases produced
