96Wine Spectator

A big, ripe style that’s rough hewn and chunky, yet deep and concentrated, with flashy plum, red and black cherry, red licorice and mineral notes, with a touch of green olive and espresso. Fullbodied, focused, complex and persistent.

94The Wine Advocate

Deep garnet in color, the 2007 Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is redolent of crème de cassis, preserved plums, Christmas cake and blackberry pie with hints of Indian spices, incense and camphor. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with spiced black fruit preserves flavors, supported by a firm frame of rounded tannins and great freshness, finishing with epic length.

91+ Vinous / IWC

Bright, deep red-ruby. Lively aromas of cherry and tobacco lifted by a floral quality; higher-pitched than the basic 2006 cabernet. Then juicy, dry and tightly wound on the palate, with a distinctly weightless quality to the cherry, floral and mineral flavors. Plenty of tannic spine here for aging...


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.


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.
