Winemaker's Tasting Notes:
Pedigree with attitude!  This sophisticated Cabernet Sauvignon offers pure aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, creme de cassis, roasted chestnuts and dried wildflowers. Secondary notes of black cardamom, mocha, cappuccino foam and granite powder add dimension and complexity. Powerful yet elegant.  Concentrated yet balanced. The palate is laden with rich black fruit flavors, currants, graphite, exotic spice box and a graceful minerality.  While a delicious experience now, watch the Oakville Cabernet blossom over the next two decades.

Vintage Notes:
2016 was an unquestionably near perfect vintage; with an early start and a season filled with long, warm days.  The grapes developed beautifully achieving optimal ripeness at harvest.  The resulting wines exhibit expressive, balanced and complex fruit flavors, supported by elegant tannins.  Oakville Ranch is a 330-acre estate located 1,400 feet above the valley floor on the eastern side of the Oakville AVA along the foothills of the Vaca mountain range.  This mountain vineyard is bathed in all-day sunlight. The vines produce low yield, small berried clusters of world-class Cabernet Sauvignon.
