Purchased by E.J. McGah in 1990, this 65-acre vineyard estate is a family owned and operated Napa Valley gem. .The picturesque McGah family vineyard is nestled just north of Oakville and bordering the Silverado Trail, in an area known for its unique terroir. This ultra-premium Rutherford bench fruit has been awarded 100 point scores, thanks to a first-class vineyard management team, impeccable farming practices and quality control. Myriad Cellars hand select its Semillon and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes each year to ensure consistency vintage after vintage.
Although Rutherford represents a relatively small appellation, its distinct microclimate and soils have made it home to some of the region’s most storied wineries. The soils from this upper east-side bench are a mix of red and brown gravelly loam with excellent drainage. The Rutherford American Viticultural Area (AVA) provides the perfect amount of heat to ripen Cabernet Sauvignon, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc but also provides the cooler evenings necessary for uniform ripening and full maturity at harvest.
