Winemaker Notes

The impeccably farmed Oakville Ranch Vineyard, high above the valley floor, is the source of fruit for this wine. The vineyard is organically farmed by Phil Coturri who truly understands how to work with the red hillside soils of this ranch. Surprisingly, the fruit from this mountain vineyard produces a wine that, although powerful, is more elegant and supple than expected. Blackberries, cassis and mocha on the nose are followed by similar flavors as well as cola and beautifully integrated tannins. The finish is long and seamless.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Aiken Oakville has the potential to be a show-stopper. Its dense purple color is accompanied by sweet black currant fruit, licorice, graphite and floral notes. Complex aromatically, it hits the palate with resounding power, medium to full body and a long, juicy finish. This sexy, open-knit Cabernet is drinkable now, and capable of lasting a decade or more.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Ripe to the edge of being pruny, but very complete, rich and layered, offering tiers of melted black licorice, dried currant and plum, ending with a persistence that echoes the core flavors.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
This ambitious Cabernet keeps up with the best of the 2010 vintage. Made by Beaulieu’s longtime chief winemaker, it’s ripe and pure with mocha, blackberry jam and sweet oak flavors. Give it 5–6 years to integrate.

Home to some of the most sought-after Cabernet Sauvignon in America, Napa Valley’s Oakville district stretches across the center of Napa's valley floor and foothills between the Vaca and Mayacamas Mountains. This AVA is home to the legendary To Kalon Vineyard and Martha's Vineyard, as well as many powerhouse wineries including Screaming Eagle, Silver Oak, Robert Mondavi, Opus One, Far Niente and Groth.

The climate is generally warm and agreeable, resulting in year after year of favorable vintages. Summer days see a gentle tug of war between warmer inland air and the cool air coming in from the San Pablo Bay, creating an ideal environment to grow red varieties. Oakville's diverse soils, namely ancient sea bedrock, clay and gravel, are well-drained, and perfect for high-caliber viticulture.

Cabernet here is often bottled varietally but is also popular in Bordeaux Blends. Oakville wines are known for their silky, sensual textures, structured tannins, dark and brooding fruit and lovely aromatics. These age-worthy and prestigious wines are favored by collectors throughout the world.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
