"The Sausal Vineyard site presents us with an excellent opportunity to grow Cabernet Sauvignon with a variety of soils and conditions not previously available to us in the production of our Alexander Valley Cabernet," he added. 

"We are excited to see what other opportunities it will afford us in the future."
