93Wine Enthusiast

From an outstanding, biodynamically farmed site, this red is elegant and refined, with silky tannins. Earthy, herbal and mineral-driven, it shows tangy red fruit, integrated oak and components of cedar, tobacco and barnyard that resonate across a lengthy palate.

91James Suckling

Aromas of dark cherries, mocha, dried herbs, dried flowers and walnuts. Some iodine and sea urchin. It’s medium-to full-bodied with fine tannins and a creamy texture.


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.


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.
