The Doggwood Vineyard is planted near the ridgeline of the eastern hills of the Napa Valley AVA, part of the Vaca range. Moderate slopes in a bowl-like valley give vines diverse exposures, while rocky soils force them into a beneficial struggle that results in concentrated cabernet sauvignon grapes.
