3.3 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 7, 337 and 169
Promised Land is the first vineyard block planted by Jim Barbour in 2002. It is located on the exposed saddle at 1300 feet above sea level, twenty feet below the northern- most ridge of Diamond Mountain. The block is comprised of 18 to 24 inches of gravelly loam over intensely inter- mingled volcanic soils and slopes north and south 5%-25%. This site yields 1.5 to 2 tons of intense, powerful black fruit flavored grapes per acre. The block was expanded in 2010 adding 1.5 acres of clone 169.
