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, licorice and mocha on the nose are followed by similar flavors as well as cola and beautifully integrated tannins. The finish is long and seamless.

Wine Enthusiast
This is a 100% varietal wine sourced from the coveted Oakville Ranch Vineyard on the eastern edge of the appellation. Cedar, herb, meat and soy mingle around a full-bodied weight softened by the wine's classic edge, length and breadth of black fruit and vanilla oak. Drink now through 2022.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A beautiful 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville shows notes of toasty oak, licorice, forest floor, blackcurrants, and a bit of chocolate in a full-bodied, dense, rich, yet supple and drinkable style. It very much mirrors the beautiful fruit and drama of this vintage, which is showy already. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.

Napa Valley, California

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, Malbec and 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.
