Formerly a portion of the iconic To-Kalon and surrounded by the celebrated vintners of Oakville, the Oakville Station is not only a premium vineyard but also a world-class research facility for UC Davis. Cornerstone Cellars has been a proud partner of this vineyard for over a decade. From the first swirl, the enticing aromas of ripe black currant and the sweet characteristics of cherry and cranberry are intertwined with notes of dried herbs and a hint of black tea. Soft and lush on entry the first sip is consistent with the aromas that Cabernet from Oakville is known for. Big and bold in the midpalate, the nuanced flavors of cassis and black licorice shine through. Delightfully complex, another swirl or two releases the ripe fruit flavors and the mouthfilling texture. Even at this young age the tannins are integrated and silky. While approachable now, you will be rewarded with a little time in the cellar. ~ Winery
