Clonal Evaluation of Cabernet Sauvignon Clones from Heritage, French, and Old California Sources

Funding was provided for nursery expenses in the first year of this work. Approximately 3000 cuttings of 11 OR rootstock were collected. Budwood from 20 different Cabernet Sauvignon clones from the FPMS collection, California Heritage sources and French ENTAV sources was collected and is currently being benchgrafted. The vineyard will be planted in a randomized design in Oakville, Napa Valley and data collection will begin in 2005/2006.
