Beautiful Napa Cabernet from Oakville. Vine Cliff is becoming one of my Napa favorites.
Awesome! - Tasted 2/27/10
one of the best wines I have ever tasted, a little more body would have made it the absolute best! A nose of dark fruit, vanila, and oak....on the palate ripe cherry with a little bit of rasberry hints of oak and vanilla and currant one of the smoothest finishing wines I have ever tasted!
My first and only taste of this wine was last summer (June 12, 2007). At the time, my notes were sparse, but here goes: Nose of big fruit, little oak, strawberries, slight vanilla (perhaps more oak than I describe with "little"?) Flavors were typical Cab (i.e. cassis), with strong tannins. I think my notes indicate the tannins weren't harsh, but rather strong in structure.
External Reviews for Vine Cliff Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville
Pretty much as good as Napa Cabernet gets. Shows the blackberries, black currants, blueberries and spicy plums of Oakville and scads of spices, and the tannin-acid structure is, in a word, superb. The oak elaboration is just about perfect, adding a t... Wine Enthusiast. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2007 Vine Cliff Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Estate 750ml
Winemaker Notes - Aroma: Nuanced aromas of both red and dark fruits, with blueberries and red cherries playing a leading role. Hints of spice, bay leaf and cocoa add layers of complexity and character. Palate: Entering with bright sweet fruit, the palate is rich, full bodied and powerful. Shades of mocha and molasses from the French oak provide a complexity that lingers through the finish.
WE 98 Pts. WS 91 Pts. - Winemaker's Notes - Intense at entry with bright sweet fleshy currant, blackberry, and cassis fruits. Hints of dark chocolate and licorice add complexity to the intense black fruits. The flavors build into a rich, full bodied mid palate that has a mouth feel that is lush and harmonious. The finish goes on and on.
92 Points Wine Spectator: A rich creamy style with a dash of toasty vanilla layered with red and black fruits and a hint of anise and sage. Complex elegant and balanced with supple tannins. Drink now through 2016.

Wine Tasting NotesThe aroma has classic Cabernet fruits of blackberry, currant, sweet cherry, plum, and fresh red raspberry jam. The Cabernet Franc adds bright aromatic and floral notes which complement nicely the oak spice notes of vanilla, chocolate, caramel, and cedar. The palate is flavorful with a core of sweet boysenberry, blackberry, and juicy raspberry fruits, accented with vanilla, cedar, and chocolate oak flavors. The mouth feel is smooth and rich with a luscious texture that builds with round supple refined tannins lingering on the finish.
