Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

The alluring dense, dark plum color of the 2016 Oakville Cabernet is the first indication of the rich extraction in this wine. Sweet aromas of blackberry tart, ripe plums and marzipan are complemented with a savory hint of toasted coriander seed. The palate opens smoothly, building to a rich, full mouthfeel — the young tannins hinting at a restrained power. A beautifully balanced acidity dances throughout — giving an undercurrent of freshness and a counterpoint to the sweetness of the new French oak, lifting the dark fruits and bringing forward ripe red berries. The finish is layered with baking spices, wild blackberries, and a hint of dried black currant. This wine is enjoyably exuberant now but has the fruit and structure to last another 15+ years should you desire.

Accolades

Vineyard

The Cabernet Sauvignon fruit is grown on our Estate vineyards and those of several partner growers all within the Oakville AVA — in the heart of the Napa Valley. The fruit is night-harvested, cluster sorted by hand, crushed, then fermented at our Oakville Estate winery. Coming from a diverse selection of vineyards, the fruit was harvested over the course of 23 days this season, showcasing the complexity and diversity within this compact AVA.

Pairing

Braised short ribs with root vegetables or a big ol’ juicy hamburger will be excellent companions for this rich red wine. If meat isn’t for you, this Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon will also pair beautifully with a rich wild mushroom risotto.
