100Vinous / IWC

...breathtaking elegance and beauty. Crème de cassis, graphite, lavender, mint and espresso all build in a sumptuous, layered Cabernet Sauvignon that dazzles from start to finish.

100Jeb Dunnuck

...incredible, Pauillac-like perfume of blackcurrants, lead pencil-shavings, tobacco, chocolate, and damp earth, with more floral and spice notes developing with time in the glass. Full-bodied and flawlessly balanced, with a rare mix of power and elegance...

97The Wine Advocate

...bold notes of black and red currants, chocolate-covered cherries, mulberries and kirsch with touches of wild sage, tilled soil, black olives and truffles plus a waft of lilacs. The medium to full-bodied palate explodes with bright, crunchy black and red fruits, supported by ripe, grainy tannins and fantastic freshness, finishing long and savory.


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.
