2021 Unwritten, Signature Series Oakville Station Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville 12x75cl

JD99WI97
Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage production: 50 cases 2021 marks the inaugural release of the Signature Series Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon, and what a vintage in which to debut! The Oakville... Station Vineyard is rich in Napa Valley history and has been proclaimed to be the most important vineyard anywhere in the world, as so many foundational experiments have been conducted on this property by viticulture students at UC Davis that have shaped the Napa Valley wine region. Sandwiched between Robert Mondavi’s Monastery Block, the Oakville Grade and Walnut Drive, it is at the heart of the original To Kalon Vineyard. For those Napa Valley history buffs, the original budwood for Martha’s Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon came from the Oakville Station. Today, the modern Oakville Station comprises two vineyards of 8 hectares each: the Old Federal Vineyard, which was part of Hamilton Crabb’s Ranch (considered one of the pioneers who developed Napa Valley as a wine region) and the South Station, from Stelling’s McGill Ranch, all of which are farmed by the viticulture program at UC Davis. Fruit for the 2021 was harvested on 20th September, and the wine spent 23 months in new French oak (Darnajou and Taransuad) prior to bottling on 21st August, 2023.

2021 Unwritten, Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley 1x75cl

JD97
Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage production: 115 cases Unwritten is a true insider's secret, known only to those with an inside track, this gorgeous Cabernet is a unique marriage of Oakville... and Howell Mountain 'Grand Cru' Vineyards. The inaugural 2014 vintage was an instant sell-out, taking pride of place on the lists of two Napa culinary institutions: The French Laundry, and Press. It has since become one of the hottest tickets in Napa. The 2021 Unwritten Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of two prestigious vineyards from two distinct appellations: David Abreu's legendary Las Posadas Vineyard near the top of Howell Mountain, and the historic Oakville Station Vineyard on the slopes of western Oakville, where it's surrounded by Mondavi and Opus One's To Kalon holdings, and Heitz's Martha's Vineyard. The wine is a masterclass in counterpoint: the mountain fruit brings waves of density and structure while the valley floor fruit imbues the lush power that stitches the complex elements together. The fruit for the 2021 was harvested in Oakville on 20th September, and Las Posadas between 27th September and 4th October. The wine spent 23 months in 80% new French oak (Darnajou and Taransaud) prior to bottling on 21st August, 2023.

2019 Unwritten, Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley 12x75cl

WI97
Blend: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage production: 136 cases Unwritten is a true insider's secret, known only to those with an inside track, this gorgeous Cabernet is a unique marriage of Oakville... and Howell Mountain 'Grand Cru' Vineyards. The inaugural 2014 vintage was an instant sell-out, taking pride of place on the lists of two Napa culinary institutions: The French Laundry, and Press. It has since become one of the hottest tickets in Napa. The fruit for this remarkable Cabernet comes from the historic Lewelling Vineyard in the western foothills of Napa's famed Saint Helena AVA, a stones throw from the Beckstoffer Dr Crane, Spottswoode and Abreu Madrona Ranch vineyards - the A-list neighbourhood. This is a Cabernet that ticks all the boxes: perfect bottle age from an epic vintage, drinking beautifully now, rare as hen's teeth, poured at one of the greatest 3* restaurants in the world. Four Corners Wine: "This 100& Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautifully structured and more savoury expression of the flamboyant 2019 vintage. The nose is full of inviting aromas of fresh bay leaves, a hint of star anise, lovely dark berries, framed by a lifted floral note of Spring flowers. There's a fantastic richness on the palate which is wonderfully fresh and energetic. It's the depth and structure of the tannins that really shines here, promising a brilliant evolution. The intense fruit of Oakville is married perfectly to the minerality and vibrancy of Howell Mountain."

The palate is so well balanced, showing the classic lift and energy of western St. Helena. The crisp, layered blackcurrant fruit is supported by crisp red berries, star anise and a ferrous note that wraps it all together beautifully, leading to a long finish.
