"San Benito County lies along the San Andreas Fault just beneath the Gabilan Mountain Range. This region sees warmer and dryer weather than its neighbor, Monterey County. The fruit for this Cabernet is planted against the Diablo Mountain Range; composed of heavy clay and loam soils and the vineyard is minimally irrigated. This water restrain forces the roots to dig deep down to get water. This irrigation practice combined with these warm days and mild nights provide the ideal growing conditions for Bordeaux varietals."
