Wine Maker Notes
Clay Station’s distinct soil is a direct result of eons of runoff from the Sierra Nevada mountain range, imbuing the land with a unique set of minerals. The mix of large granite and stone cobbles that break up the soil profile create excellent drainage. Additionally, a rocky soil component over a layer of fertile red soil allows for deep root penetration and ultimately a stable vine during times of low moisture and heat. Remarkably, Clay Station's terroir is very similar to Bordeaux, making it an ideal match for the 337 clone and Cabernet Sauvignon.
