92Wine Spectator

A deliciously rich and generous wine that's also weel-structured, with layers of spicy currant, cedary oak and hints of mocha and chocolate. Finishes with big, rich, mouthcoating tannins and a persistent aftertaste.



Provenance Vineyards focuses on provenance, the French idea that the geographical origin or source of grapes is integral to the character of the wine. Located in the heart of Rutherford, Provenance owns estate vineyards but also sources grapes from such legendary vineyards as Three Palms, Georges III and Wildwood. The estate’s inaugural release was a 1999 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon, and it specializes in single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc. David Galzignato is winemaker. The estate is owned by Treasury Wine Estate, an Australian enterprise with a portfolio of premium wine estates.


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.
