When asked what makes him the most proud regarding his wines over the last 30+ years, Rob cited three achievements:  “I suppose that number one for me is our focus on creating a master quality wine throughout our entire line. From Fume to Cabernet, each wine is varietally accurate. This is difficult to achieve and requires constant vigilance. Secondly, we work extraordinarily hard to maintain Vintage-to-Vintage consistency, even though Mother Nature likes to throw us a curve ball from time to time. Thirdly, I am proud of the extent of the recognition our wines have received. I feel that this underscores our approach to constancy and consistency.”
