Meteor Vineyard

Meteor

History

Well-drained soils impart depth and minerality to a wine. During the critical maturation period warm, even temperatures allow for leisurely ripening that softens tannins and produces lush, bright fruit. Both of those aspects of a great site are amply evident at Meteor Vineyard.

The vineyard features a unique combination of elevation, aspect and stony, rich volcanic soil was an optimal site for 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Meteor vineyard grapes produce “Vibrant, violet-hued, intense color, blackberry, voluptuous, upfront, ripe fruit aromas & flavors, focused, precise, classic, balance and structure”. Arrow&Branch used Meteor Vineyard grapes in their 2010 and 2011 “Black Label” Cabernet Sauvignon wines.
