Winemaker Notes

Enters with sweet black cherry, cassis, black currant jam, and red raspberry with a hint of anise. Honeysuckle, tobacco and the suggestion of forest floor add dimension, along with cedar and spicy nutmeg from the French Oak.

Intense at entry with bright, sweet currant, blackberry and cassis. Hints of dark chocolate and licorice add complexity to the dark fruits. The flavors build into a rich, full-bodied mid palate with a mouth feel that is both substantial and harmonious. Round, polished tannins linger on the finish.

Equally at home with a New York strip or an artisan cheese course, this is assuredly a food-lover's cabernet.

Critical Acclaim

Wine Spectator
A rich, creamy style, with a dash of toasty vanilla layered with red and black fruits and a hint of anise and sage. Complex, elegant and balanced, with supple tannins. Drink now through 2016.

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.
