Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

The Oakville appellation spans the Napa Valley from the Vaca Mountains in the east to the Mayacamas in the west. Within this storied terroir, our 25-acre Dos Olivos Vineyard—so named for the two stately olive trees that guard its entrance—has moderate temperatures and well-drained gravel and clay soils that yield Cabernet Sauvignon of exceptional structure and balance.

VINEYARDS 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.

WINEMAKING  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.

TASTING NOTES  Our Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon shows a deep ruby color that leads to enticing aromas of red fruit, such as cherry and cranberry with notes of dried herbs. Aging in French oak barrels contributes aromas of vanilla, sandlewood, and allspice. The entry is sweet with fresh red fruit, cinnamon and a touch of green olive. Juicy acidity, silky texture and polished tannins lead to a delicious finish. Additional cellaring will reward the collector.

PAIRING  Pair this wine with a hearty Bolognese sauce. The cow’s milk cheese from Italy, Montasio’s sweet and savory character is an ideal pairing for the Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon.
