This was a gorgeous, gorgeous wine. I wish I bought more bottles when I was at the winery. Deep, dark color. Bursting with thick brambley fruits, and chewy tannins made my mouth happy. Was really impressed with this.

Winemaker's Notes:

Harvest: The Cabernet Sauvignon fruit is grown on our Estate controlled vineyards, in the Oakville AVA, in the heart of the Napa Valley. The Oakville District is renowned for its Cabernet Sauvignon and produces wines that are full, lush and very elegant. Winemaking: Fermentation was carried out over a ten-day period in small, temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks at an average temperature of 85 F. After pressing and settling, the wine was transferred to small French oak barrels for aging. The sweet vanilla character derived from 20 months read more... read more... in the barrels blends well with the black cherry and blackberry flavors and aromas of the wine. Cabernet Sauvignon is big and lush with huge gobs of fruit in the aroma and flavor. The texture of the wine is soft and supple, typical of Cabernet Sauvignons grown in our area of the Oakville AVA. Patience during bottle aging will reward the “steward” with an outstanding bottle over the next 10 to 15 years. Menu suggestion: “I enjoy a glass of Oakville Cabernet with a grass-fed, roasted New York steak and a potato-butternut squash gratin.” Kimball Jones, Culinary Director. Key Points • Oakville Appellation • Cabernet Sauvignon 83%, Merlot 17% • Aged in French oak barrels for 20 months, 50% new French oak. • Lush flavors with subtle tannin backbone
