VINE CLIFF-Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon SV
Individual vineyard blocks are fermented and aged separately. Careful winemaking, gentle techniques, and limited processing all contribute to wines that express the terrior of the Vine Cliff Estate. Our 2013 Oakville blend is 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc. This wine was aged in 65% new tight grain French oak barrels. This classic Napa Cabernet is filled with aromas of cassis, plum, black cherry, and hints of violet and mint. Aging in the finest French Oak barrels and small lot fermentation contribute to an enticing bouquet of cedar, anise, vanilla, mocha and sage. This full-bodied, rich cabernet has smooth polished tannin and flavors of berry and plum on the palate.
