"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate from Oak Knoll, which spent 20 months in 75% new French oak is another realistic value for a top-notch Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine (525 cases) has an opaque ruby/purple color, dense chocolaty cassis fruit and is a real pleasure-bomb style of wine that is full-bodied succulent and fleshy. Drink it over the next decade or more."
"Our estate vineyard is located on a special parcel in the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. The vineyard borders Dry Creek at the base of the Mayacamas Mountain range and is located in the largest of 10 alluvial fan belts in Napa Valley. The well-drained sandy and gravelly loam soils, in partnership with moderate temperatures, yield concentrated fruit with great flavor intensity, yet a supple mouth-feel.
The vineyard is planted to three different clones of Cabernet Sauvignon Each of the four vineyard blocks were hand-harvested at dawn and carefully hand sorted. The wine is aged for 20 months in an assortment of the finest French oak barrels that are chosen to complement the subtle nuances of the vineyard. The selection of these barrels further enhances the length, depth and complexity of this varietal and reveals a well-integrated wine that is made to last.
