Sequoia Grove Winery was founded in 1978 by Jim Allen, whose love for European wines inspired him to discover Napa Valley in the early days, and whose determination has produced elegant, award-winning wines of depth and character ever since. Sequoia Grove Winery is nestled on 24 acres of choice Napa Valley vineyards in Rutherford, California, on the site of a 100 year-old farmhouse surrounded by some of the last sequoia trees in the Napa Valley. These redwoods are carefully preserved by the Allen family and today, the majestic sequoia trees have become the trademark of the winery and symbols of the family's commitment to conservation of our natural resources.
The 24-acre estate is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot and a small amount of Chardonnay. The Rutherford viticultural district is more than an appellation of Napa Valley. Rutherford is an icon of quality, the standard bearer for the best fruit. It is the center of Napa Valley, where some of the most sought-after wines in the world are produced.
Sequoia Grove Winery Cabernet Sauvignon
This elegant yet full-bodied wine is a classic expression of the Napa Valley style of Cabernet. Its fragrant, perfumed bouquet of black fruit and cassis is offset by notes of smoke, cedar and vanilla which are confirmed on the palate in a structure of ripe, supple tannins and a full, velvety texture. The wine's fruit intensity carries into a lasting finish which promises graceful maturation, yet shows early approachability.
Sequoia Grove Winery Chardonnay
This extremely elegant Chardonnay is a lovely amalgam of richness and finesse. Its classic varietal fragrance of white and tropical fruits is offset by subtle notes of vanilla and spice, which carry onto a palate marked by superb full fruit and acid balance and a refined, crisp texture. The finish confirms the fruit intensity shown in the flavors, and is long, supple and clean.
