Perched at 1800 feet on the Vaca Mountain Range looking out towards Spring Mountain and Diamond Mountain in the Mayacamas Mountain Range, the property is home to some of the oldest Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon vines in the Howell Mountain Appellation.  Thanks to Mike Beatty’s pioneering vision, he acquired the property in 1977 after two years of drought left others doubting the vineyard’s potential, and farmed it for quality, establishing it as one of Howell Mountain’s premium vineyards. This 34 acre vineyard, planted with equal parts of Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon with small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot for blending, quickly became a favorite for Howell Mountain wine producers like Dunn Vineyards, Ridge Vineyards, and Duckhorn.
