RATINGS

91James Suckling

Aromas of ripe berries and currants with hints of flowers and sandalwood. Full body, with refined tannins and a pretty finish. This is balanced and harmonious.

PRODUCER

Gargiulo Vineyards

Gargiulo Vineyards is in Oakville, in Napa Valley. It was founded by Jeff Gargiulo, a farmer, and his wife Valerie. They purchased a vineyard in Oakville in 1992, and another in 1999. Today they make several red wines from their two vineyards. They produce Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Cab blends, and a Bordeaux-style blend.

REGION

United States, California, Napa Valley, Oakville

Oakville AVA is one of the two or three most prestigious appellations in the United States. Located in the heart of Napa Valley, its 5,000 vineyard acres produce some of the world’s most acclaimed Cabernet Sauvignon, including such California “cult” Cabs as Screaming Eagle and Harlan Estate. Before those boutique producers rose to fame in the 1990s, Oakville was already renowned as home to Robert Mondavi, Opus One and Groth Vineyards, among others. Along with the famous wineries, there are premier vineyards in this AVA, including Martha’s Vineyard and To Kalon Vineyard. To Kalon was first planted in 1868 by H.W. Crabb, one of California’s first viticultural researchers, and he named the vineyard after the ancient Greek phrase for “most beautiful.” Though many grapes can be successfully grown in Oakville, Cabernet Sauvignon is king. Merlot and Chardonnay are also frequently planted. Oakville Cabs are prized for their richness, complexity and weight. Oakville was designated as an AVA in 1993.

TYPE

Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
