Situated on the valley floor, the Holmes Ranch benefits from the ideal balance between warmth and cooling influences. The vineyard's location between the Mayacamas Mountains to the west and the Vaca Range to the east allows for a gentle, sun-kissed ripening period while being gently cooled by the breezes from San Pablo Bay to the south. These favorable conditions result in wines that exude a sense of place, with rich, opulent fruit flavors and a backbone of refined tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon is the star varietal here, and the grapes produced on this hallowed ground yield wines of exceptional elegance and complexity. Holmes Ranch Vineyard is a testament to the meticulous care of its vines and the ability to capture the essence of Oakville's terroir in every bottle.
