Napa Valley is ideally positioned between two mountain ranges to the east and to the west: the Vaca and the Mayacamas. Within the valley, grape character and flavor are unique expressions of the diverse soil types and microclimates. The winery hand selects lots from this rich array of outstanding fruit, including vineyards within the Rutherford appellation, to craft Two Range Red Wine, a delicious and complex blend that captures the essence of the world-renowned wine growing region.
The 2015 growing season began with unseasonably warm winter and spring temperatures across Napa Valley. Soils began to warm up quickly, which initiated an early bud break. Colder temperatures then followed, creating a smaller crop than previous years as winemakers prepared for harvest. Picking began in early August, proving to be one of the earliest harvest Napa Valley has ever seen. Across the valley, winemakers were happy to report the outstanding quality and great fruit concentration produced by the early harvest.
