Winemaker Notes

Rich, ripe, supple and harmonious, with plush, concentrated currant, plum and black cherry fruit that's highlighted by spicy notes and pretty, toasty oak shadings. Finishes with a long, lingering after-taste that keeps revealing extra flavor facets.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon (5% Cabernet Franc is included in the blend) is an elegant, pretty effort offering black currant flavors intermixed with spicy oak and floral notes. The wine possesses a plush texture, impeccable purity, fine balance, and a medium to full-bodied, long finish.

Showket Winery Image
After searching for three years, in October, 1988, Kal and Dorothy Showket bought a beautiful property in the hills overlooking Oakville in the heart of Napa Valley. The Showkets knew they had a unique location, but they also knew they had much hard work ahead of them in order to bring the vineyard up to its potential. They contracted with well-respected and highly reputable Pina Vineyard Management, to help them renew the vineyard. All vines have since been replaced.

The soils of Oakville are known to be one of the top winegrowing regions in the world for Cabernet Sauvignon. The concentration of cult wineries in this area is a testament to the high quality of wines this part of the world can produce. Within the Oakville appellation, Showket Vineyards with an elevation of approximately 600 feet is perched in the hills above Silverado Trail. With neighbors like Dalle Valle, Vine Cliff, Phelps’ Backus vineyard, Oakville Ranch, Turnbull’s Weitz Vineyard and sitting above Screaming Eagle and Rudd Estate—this is undeniable prime Cabernet real estate. Before producing wines under their own label, the Showkets sold some of their fruit to top wineries like Caymus, Dalle Valle, and Shafer. The vineyard’s pedigree is unquestionable.

The vineyard, which is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Sangiovese experiences slightly cooler temperatures in the summer than the valley floor and slightly warmer ones in the winter. Because of the elevation and orientation of the vineyard no frost protection is required. The soil is clay-loam type that is very rocky. The vines are stressed sufficiently to produce excellent wines. The tonnage is considerably less than what vines produce on the valley floor giving intensity in flavor that can only be produced in such a pristine hillside vineyard. Dorothy and Kal Showket are committed to giving respect to their unique property and handcrafting red wines of great quality and distinction.

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wines. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
