This wine is a showstopper! Revealing a kaleidoscopic array of profoundly heady aromas including black cherry syrup, brambly blackberries, graphite, black raspberries, black currants, espresso and crème de cassis—all pinned together with beautiful minerality. Nuances of black pepper, chaparral brush, suede, tobacco and crushed rock further propels the aromatic complexity.
This is a wine that embodies grace, power and seduction. At first sip Cabernet is balanced and seamless while possessing depth and concentration of black and purple fruit expressions. The fined-grained tannins integrate effortlessly with the wine’s intensity, finishing with long-lasting echoes of yum!
Vineyards: Oakville Ranch
In 2017 northern California experienced a wet winter. e end of June
into July we experienced a twenty day heat spell that tempered and
controlled the vigor of the vines producing incredibly small berried
clusters and intensely flavored fruit. Despite Mother Nature's curveballs,
the vines produced low yields of top quality fruit rich in color and
deeply concentrated in flavor and tannin. Oakville Ranch is a 330-acre
estate located 1,400 feet above the valley floor on the eastern side
of the Oakville AVA along the foothills of the Vaca mountain range.
Bathed in all-day sunlight, the vines produce low yield, small berried
clusters of world-class Cabernet Sauvignon.
20 months, 85% new French Oak
