Our Oakville vineyard, located near the Napa River is an exceptional place to grow grapes and make this wine.  The result is this stunning, opaque wine with aromas of blackberry, forest fruits, dark roasted espresso and graphite on the nose.  The palate is rich, full and brooding with flavors of boysenberry compote, clove, black pepper, vanilla and French oak spices.  It is well balanced, full bodied and complex with a finish that lis long, lingering and vibrant.

Vineyard Notes

Oakville (100%) Located at the southern end of the Oakville AVA, east side of Hwy 29 and just north of Yountville, the vineyard soil is gravelly alluvial loam, similar to the To Kalon vineyard on the west side of the Hwy.  The climate is moderately warm in the afternoons, and strongly affected by the night and early morning fog, which helps to keep acidity levels in balance.  Our Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon express’s rich dark fruit like black currant with a tremendous depth of flavor and balanced tannin…enjoy.


Production Notes

The year began with abundant rainfall and a cool spring which made for a long flowering season.  The crop set a bit light and a very warm summer created great intensity and power in the fruit.  Harvest started early in September and progressed through early October.  The fruit while small in quantity is big on flavor, tannins and ageability.
