Turning east off the famous Silverado Trail onto Sage Canyon Road takes you towards Lake Hennessy and the imperious Pritchard Hill. Hang a right at the boat ramp and you’ll find yourself at the gates of some superstar wineries including Chappellet, Colgin IX Estate, OVID and Bryant. Stay on Sage Canyon for another 200 metres though, and there’s a dirt track on the left heading high up into the mountains to one of Napa’s most remarkable, undiscovered diamonds: Sage Ridge Vineyard.
Here, a highly complex terroir of ancient seabed and volcanic rock is producing Cabernet Sauvignons of elegance, finesse and intensity at the hands of a select few winemakers.
