Winemaker's Notes

The 2001 edition of our now classic Oakley Vin Rouge has been a continuation of a tradition for me. I use as my model the best Côtes du Rhône reds from Frances's warm Southern Rhône Valley yet seek to emphasize a fruit profile that is more characteristically Californian. The weather and terrain in the Contra Costa County seem to mimic nicely those of the Southern Rhône, providing me with ample, rich and hearty fruit from which to fashion this blend. Predominately Mourvèdre and Carignane with small dollops of Syrah, Alicante Bouschet and Cinsault the 2001 Oakley Vin Rouge is a delicious wine presently and will cellar beautifully for three or four years.
