Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon
Story and Character
This is our flagship wine, opulent and balanced with an exceptional multi dimensional personality that evolves as it transcends across your palate. Vivid blackberry, raspberry, and blueberry notes mixed with African violet and maduro tobacco. Racing acidity, and an enveloping velvet like tannin rolls over your tongue. Rich undertones of dark chocolate and caramel linger into a finish that refuses to give way.
A truly balanced masterpiece, cascading across the palate with new and ever evolving notes. Designed to be enjoyed today or cellared for decades. This wine personifies our unwavering commitment to excellence and the pursuit of perfection.
This was the first wine we set out to make, the others more or less formed around this as a progression and exploration in varying vineyard terroirs. Stylistically we always knew Oakville would give us the foundation upon which we could pursue our goal and build our label. It is the perfect conflux in Napa Valley between North and South, East and West. It provides exceptional balance, exceptional sophistication. This is uncompromising Napa Valley Cabernet at its highest level.
