Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Vintage production: 485 cases
The Oakville Estate Vineyard lies in western Oakville, overlooked on three sides by Harlan Estate, BOND Winery, and Promontory Winery. The 2019 is unique as the first vintage to be 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and, in out opinion, would outperform its neighbours and peers to the east including Screaming Eagle. Pure Cabernet cannot be any better than this, reaffirmed by James Suckling who scored it 100pts.
Four Corners Wine
“The Oakville shows total purity from the get-go, with so much concentration and depth of fruit on the nose, framed with delicate floral notes, fresh rosemary, a touch of star anise, with a lifted graphite-minerality. This is amazingly complex and oh so delicious. The palate in phenomenal – simply stunning. It’s so complex and layered and an unmistakable expression of the Estate vineyard. The interplay of concentration and intensity with most incredible tannins and energy is mind-blowing. Everything about this wine is perfect. It’s incredible, and arguably the greatest Cabernet Sauvignon we’ve ever tasted.” (Dec. 2021)
