Our 2013 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon offers rich aromas of
black assam tea with an earthy herbs de Provence element. There is a good harmony with aromas of rosehips and cherry


This is a round and balanced wine with a supple entry
and a long finish with a bright acidity

Growing Conditions

The grapes for the Oak Knoll Cabernet Sauvignon were
sourced from two vineyards within half a mile from each
other. The soils are based on the Dry Creek Alluvial fan over a
rocky sub-surface layer, creating very deep and well-drained
soils. The grapes are a mix of clone 7, 29 and 33. Clone 7 was
the predominant clone in Napa in the 80’s and 90’s known
for its high quality and decent sized production. Clone 29 is a
heritage clone that dates back to the late 1880’s and Clone 33
is French.

The 2013 vintage in Napa Valley was one of the earliest
harvested vintages in years. A warm spring led to early bud
break and created the perfect environment for flowering and
fruit set. With warm days and cool nights, our team was able
to maintain ideal acid levels with optimum, bright fruit

This vintage is sold out.


The grapes were fermented on the skins for 37 days with
extended maceration. After all native fermentation, the wine
was gently pressed and racked.


Aged for 20 months in 33%
new Demptos, Saury and Nadalie French oak barrels. Tightly
grained French oak barrels impart their oak to wines slowly
for a consistent, well-rounded aging process while yielding
subtle oak influences to the Cabernet Sauvignon.
