Description
 
Based in the Knights Valley appellation, where Sonoma and Napa counties meet; Michael and Amy Grable have been making highly collectible, cellar worthy Bordeaux blend wines. The Grable family purchased the minuscule 20 acre property from previous owner Peter McCoy, after he decided to retire from winemaking to take care of personal health problems.

Glable Vineyards Winery, located across the street from Peter Michael not only sits on a perfect location in the appellation but it has caught the attention of one of the most respected winemakers in California; John Kongsgaard (his wines have scored 100 pts. By Parker and have been featured in the Top 100 from Wine Spectator).
Kongsgaard has been a fan for a long time of the legendary Glables' vineyard located at the base of Mount St. Helena in Knights Valley. Therefore he has assisted both Amy and Michael by providing the 'recipe' for the winemaking.
All the fruit is estate grown.  Only making wine from what they can grow the Grables make boutique wines that are produced in very small quantities. The inaugural vintage of this wine was 2006. For today's wine 2009, production was a mere 300 cases, or a dozen barrels.

Michael planted the Bordeaux varietals (Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 6, Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 338,Cabernet Franc & Petit Verdot) in 2003. The vineyard sits at 510 feet above sea level. Soil is deep, well drained and consists of gravel, sand and clay. Because of the excellent drainage, the roots must grow deep to seek water, so the crop yields are much lower and berries are smaller with greater flavor concentration. The alluvial soil provides the mineral component that gives the wines added complexity and cellaring capability.
