Opaque dark ruby describes the color of this Oakville wine. Exceptionally complex, black berry syrup and baked cherry pie dominate the fruit aroma, with nuances of cinnamon, clove, tobacco, black pepper and forest floor. Very well integrated, the barrel aging added the right amount of complexity with French oak spices, aromatic cedar and vanilla on the back end. The wine has great depth of black fruit flavor, with a strong expression of sweet dark cherry and blackberry. This full-bodied cabernet sauvignon has a smooth entry with well resolved tannins giving it structure yet a relatively soft finish. Well balanced with good acidity, the Oakville Cab is a pleasure now and has great aging potential.

Vineyard Notes

Oakville Reach—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 expresses rich dark fruit like black currant with a tremendous depth of flavor and balanced tannin.


Production Notes

The winter continued a dry weather pattern and bud break was early. The growing season was moderate, near ideal, and on an early pace. Most varieties were harvested in September with a final wrap up on October 10th, getting it all in before any rains developed.
