Carpenter Vineyard is nesteled into the Coombsville area to the east of the city of Napa. The deep volcanic ash and loam soils hold the moisture well and lead to a long growing season. Often this is the last vineyard harvested by Nickel & Nickel. We wait for extra ripeness and for the texture to fully develop. In excellent years, the distinctive mouth feel and density are hallmarks that make Carpenter easy to identify and appreciate.
