SOLD OUT

The 2018 vintage expresses the true essence of Oakville. Displaying a rich ruby hue, the wine is accompanied by aromas of plum, dark fruit, cola, cherry, and chocolate, with refined notes of cinnamon spice. The approachable palate echoes the aromas influenced with a light presence of oak. Round, medium tannins are united with a finessed red fruit finish. Enjoy with this month’s featured recipe of roasted game hens with wild rice and pomegranate.

Vintage Notes

The fruit for this wine is grown at our Dos Olivos Vineyard in the Oakville AVA. The well-drained soils and moderate temperature of this valley floor vineyard, in conjunction with our attentive farming practices, create ideal conditions for the production of deeply fruited and well-extracted Cabernet Sauvignons.

Winemaker Notes

The season began with rain that refilled reservoirs and replenished soils, a welcome relief after an extended drought. Harvest started early at a normal pace in many regions and then progressed rapidly during a heat wave in late August and early September. Cooling temperatures in mid-September slowed the harvest and allowed red grapes to ripen gradually.

The grapes were hand harvested at night, carefully sorted in the vineyard, then brought to the cellar and destemmed. Following a cold soak, fermentation occurred at a high temperature to ensure maximum extraction was achieved. The wine was racked to 64 percent new French oak barrels, where it was aged for 18 months prior to bottling.
