The intense color of this Cabernet – a hallmark of Oakville Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon – mirrors its heady aromas of ripe blackberry and blueberry, Jordan almond and dried rose petal.


It is generous on the palate, integrating ripe fruit with creamy and delicately resinous oak, hinting at cocoa and graphite and leading to a flavorful and persistent finish.

Growing Conditions

Oakville Ranch is the original mountain vineyard of the Oakville sub-appellation,
a tiny district that produces some of Napa Valley’s most celebrated Cabernets.
A place of dramatic beauty and dedication to organic farming, Oakville Ranch
farms its hollows and terraces in a well-planned program of sustainability, and
has crafted singular wines expressive of its distinctive terroir since 1989.

The driest year on record in a string of drought years, the 2014 vintage was marked by moderate temperatures during the growing season, allowing gradual ripening and flavor development. Ripe and intense, this Cabernet shows excellent focus and definition of fruit.
