Midsummer Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Fowler's Vineyard 2008
The Fowler Vineyard is owned by Don Fowler. This vineyard is located in the upper watershed of Knights Valley just a stones throw from the Napa county line, in the hills between the towns of Calistoga and Santa Rosa.
The soils are composed of Forward and Bressa Dribble complexes and it has the steepest slopes of any of the vineyards in our line up. Because of its location the vineyard is exposed to strong afternoon breezes resulting in thicker grape skins which help to produce wines of intense color and tannin structure. The vineyard is planted using Clone 337 in its entirety. The elevation of this vineyard is about 1100 ft. above sea level.
