Our 1997 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon opens a new page in our pursuit of excellence from the Oakville AVA. The wine shows the ultimate in character that we expect from our Oakville vineyards - full, rich aromas and flavors redolent of ripe stone fruits and dark berries. In the mouth, the wine is lush and soft with a subtle tannin backbone that will allow the wine to enhance its beauty with proper bottle age.
The intense black cherry flavors of the 1997 Cabernet will go beautifully with any red meat. The fat content in lamb, beef, sausages, and even buffalo, will help to control the tannin in a very young wine. Pasta with a red sauce, pizza, and burgers are all enhanced by the spicy aromas and good balance of fruit and oak flavors.
