Weir Vineyard is in the Yorkville Highlands, about 7 miles south of Boonville. It sits between 900 and 1000 feet, on a south facing slope with well drained, rocky soil. The lower, eastern portion of the vineyard was planted in 1992. The slightly higher, western portion was planted in 2000. During the growing season, there is a 40-50 degree temperature shift between day and night. Both the elevation and the coastal air moving down the Anderson Valley provide cooling for the vineyard. We use Rochioli and 2A clones from the lower, eastern blocks and RC clone from the western blocks.
Weir Vineyard is on a south facing, gravely slope at 1000 ft elevation. Fog from the Mendocino coast covers the vineyard through cool nights, yielding to warm sunny days. It offers notes of raspberry, blackberry, mineral, fresh herbs and licorice with a long silky finish. 250 Cases Produced.
Mountain Cab that came from a friends vineyard - they almost didn’t have enough to share with Bee Hunter, but in a stroke of luck they were able to get their hands on a couple of barrels. This wine is special to Ali as she thought when she arrived in Anderson Valley is was actually Alexander Valley. This wine was a way for her to still get her Cabernet experience, and Andy was happy to indulge.
