For almost 30 years, MacRostie has focused on making benchmark Sonoma County Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs. While this focus has allowed us to cultivate a remarkable level of experience, we are wine lovers who also find joy in exploring and discovering new regions and new wines. This is why, several years ago, we began incubating a new winery here at MacRostie. We called it Clockwise—a name that captures many of the elements that are important to us from a winemaking perspective, including timing, wisdom and knowledge. Just like at MacRostie, the winemaking for Clockwise is guided by gifted Winemaker Heidi Bridenhagen and winemaking icon Steve MacRostie. This exceptional 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is from a prized single vineyard in the acclaimed Yountville region of Napa Valley. It features three different clones: 7, 8, and 169, grown on a historic 140-year-old vineyard site. Well-drained Bale clay loam soil with Coombs gravelly loam help to give this Cabernet its distinctive character.
