Under vineyard consultant Kelly Maher and Kirks watchful eye, we have replanted half of the vineyard using the newest clone technology most suitable for our specific terroir. In 2004, we planted 5 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon clone 337 and rootstalk 101-14. We planted the
clone 337 to add depth and texture to our traditional more old world Bordeaux style. Kirk and Kelly assert that the 337 serves to brighten the fruit profile in the mid palate resulting in a harmonious melange of fruit profiles.
We also planted a total of 1 acre consisting of both Cabernet Franc clone 327 Rootstalk 101-14 and Petit Verdot clone 400, rootstalk 101-14. The Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot are blended into our JAX Cabernet Sauvignon as well.
