Our vineyards have been cultivated and farmed under the direction of Salvador Ramos who has been with the Jaeger Family for over 40 years. In a joint effort with former vineyard manager Doug Hill and his vineyard management company, Oak Knoll Farming Company, we have developed a deep understanding of the relationship between the land and the fruit grown that only time can qualify. Jaeger Vineyards has demonstrated its expertise in matching varietal to terroir, an essential element to growing ultra-premium quality wine grapes.
Our vineyard, still part of our original property, is located at 5100 Big Ranch Road in the Oak Knoll District of the Napa Valley. This area is likened to the Pomerol area of Bordeaux and our results confirm it. It was replanted in phases from 2012 through 2017, and now consists of Petit Verdot, Petite Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The soil is rich and well drained gravely loam; the Rootstocks selected for strength and resiliency; the Clone selections are diverse to provide complexity in flavor profiles.
The fruit exhibits a definite reflection of the earth from which it grows; rich and luscious, showing ripe berry, cherry and cassis flavors with the depth and complexity expected from one of the best growing regions in the world for its varietals.
