From the get-go, Fred knew that he wanted to make world-class Cabernet Sauvignon. He also knew that to achieve this goal, he would have to begin with the best grapes and the finest winemaking talent.

In 2000, Fred tasted a barrel sample of Cabernet that changed the course of his life. The wine, showing tremendous richness and power with stunning fruit character and exceptional balance, was exactly what he had envisioned for his namesake wine.

On a quest to produce wine with similar depth and uniqueness, Fred discovered the source of these extraordinary grapes to be the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard in Oakville. Fred knew he had found the source for great Cabernet, and with singular focus and unquenchable determination he set out to secure grapes from this remarkable estate.
