The grapes for the Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon were sourced from a single vineyard at the corner of Oakville cross road. This knoll-top vineyard is home to mature vines that are expertly maintained in exquisite well-drained, red and orange soil, and are arranged in the optimal layout for sun exposure and grape ripening maturity.
The grapes were fermented on the skins for 26 days with pumpovers twice daily. After fermentation, the wine was gently pressed, racked and aged for 18 months in 45% new French oak barrels. Tightly grained French oak barrels impart their oak to wines slowly for a consistent, well-rounded aging process while yielding subtle oak influences to the Cabernet Sauvignon.
Our Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon opens with bold aromas of blackberry and allspice accented nicely by subtle red fruit notes and sage.
Displaying classic Oakville structure, this deliciously complex wine boasts flavors of black currant, rich vanilla, and pepper with hints of cocoa all culminating in a long, smooth finish.
