This 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from Napa’s iconic Oakville AVA, which many argue is the region that gave Napa Cabernet Sauvignon the reputation it enjoys today. Located in the middle of Napa’s valley floor, it stretches from the Mayacamas Range to the west to the Vaca Mountains to the east. The climate is warm, with enough fog influence from the San Pablo Bay to maintain acidity, making this wine powerful, but not overpowering. The iron-rich soils receive bountiful rainfall but are well drained, allowing Cabernet Sauvignon to ripen beautifully and to create the rich, full-bodied wines that Napa is so famous for.

Enjoy 2021 through 2033.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Black cherry and blackberry are prominent on the nose of this bold yet elegant wine. Cherry, chocolate, and clove on the palate are layered with strong, but velvety tannins, and a long finish.
Winemaker Notes
Hand-picked at the peak of flavor development, the grapes are crushed and cold-soaked for 24 hours. The cap is punched down three times daily to maximize flavor extraction during fermentation and maceration, which lasts 10 to 15 days. This gives the wine a bold, fruit-forward palate while maintaining enough tannin and roundness to elicit a well-balanced, pairable Cabernet Sauvignon.
