|Terroir & Vines|
The area now known as the Rutherford appellation was once just a part of a vast Mexican holding known as Rancho Caymus. One thousand acres at the northern tip of this Rancho was gifted by its owner, George C. Yount, in 1864 to his grandson-in-law, Thomas Rutherford, who began growing winegrapes for high-quality production and lent his name to the area. Soon after, producers such as Georges de Latour (founder of Beaulieu Vineyards) and Gustave Niebaum (founder of Inglenook, now known as Rubicon) established themselves. However, it was the mid-20th century winemakers André Tchelistcheff at BV and John Daniel at Inglenook who truly established the current reputation of Rutherford as a prime locale for Cabernet Sauvignon, making wines of distinction that have lasted for decades.
Terroir: A Delicate Balance
How to describe the terroir of the wines that come from the ranch where one was raised? Our family came to the ranch in 1987 with 20 year-old Zinfandel vines already planted, and we soon planted an additional few acres to Cabernet. The ranch is and always has been a working vineyard, and from the very beginning my memories never involved the vineyard in isolation from the rest of the ranch. Whether they included the walnut grove next to the vines, the wild olives in the hills above, or the jackrabbits that ran through the lower vineyard, memories of the grapes coming from Tres Sabores have never existed in a vacuum. Each new experience on the ranch reveals a little more of the world that surrounds the vineyard and the wines that come from it.
