RATINGS

93Wine Spectator

Rich, dense and layered, with complex flavors of currant, dark berry, blueberry, cedary oak, loamy earth and crushed rock, ending with a mineral-laced mix of oak and tannins. Impressive throughout.

92Vinous / IWC

Dark blue and purple fruit, violets, lavender, cloves and menthol meld together... The flavors are dark, intense and brooding, with plenty of supporting structure.

91Robert M. Parker Jr.

Abundant notions of spicy oak, red and blackcurrants, cedar and Christmas fruitcake as well as an abundance of fruit and glycerin...

REGION

United States, California, Napa Valley, Oak Knoll

Oak Knoll AVA is one of Napa Valley’s newest appellations, having received that status in 2004. Located on the southern end of Napa Valley, the appellation is close to San Pablo Bay and therefore relatively cool. Of the 8,300 acres within the appellation, 4,150 are vineyards. The principal grapes grown are Merlot, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Riesling. Locals like to call Oak Knoll “the sweet spot” thanks to its location between the San Pablo Bay and its maritime climate and the much hotter climate of Napa Valley’s floor.

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.
