The Cabernet Sauvignon fruit is grown on our Estate controlled vineyards, in the Oakville AVA, in the heart of the Napa Valley. The Oakville District is renowned for its Cabernet Sauvignon and produces wines that are full, lush and very elegant.
79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot. Aged in French Oak barrels for 20 months, 50% new French Oak.
The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon is big and lush with huge gobs of fruit in the aroma and flavor. The texture of the wine is soft and supple, typical of Cabernet Sauvignons grown in our area of the Oakville AVA. Patience during bottle aging will reward the â€œstewardâ€ with an outstanding bottle over the next 10 to 15 years.
Ratings & Reviews
"Packed with red and black currant flavors, this wine has the cool, refreshing feel of the forest. Tannins frame the berry fruit, providing contrast in umami flavors of wood-ear mushrooms, both tannins and fruit lasting in a finely structured, luxurious finish. Balanced for ten years of age."
90 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Young now, marked by hard tannins that accentuate the acidity,. The flavors are forward and jammy, suggesting blackberries, cherries, orange zest and sweet, smoky cedar wood. Rough-hewn now, with an angular feeling, but should develop softness and roundness after 2012." (03/10)
