All of our wines come from our own vineyards except for this historic site on the western edge of the Oakville appellation. First planted to vines in 1883, this research station has played a key role in advancing the quality of California's grape growing. It is now under the guidance of the University of California, Davis. We are pleased that working with the university has given us the opportunity to craft this limited bottling.

Oakville Station Cabernet Sauvignon
Tasting Notes Full-bodied with dense, supple tannins, and flavors of brandied cherries, dark baker’s chocolate, vanilla pastry, and herbal notes. Vintage Notes The beginning of the 2019 growing season was defined by copious rainfall and late soil moisture. The long, warm summer saw very few extreme heat events, with foggy mornings setting the stage for vibrant and expressive wines. The long, relatively mild finish to the season, not without its moments of unpredictability, helped to preserve freshness and finesse in the fruit with abundant hang time teasing out great color, structure, and soft tannins. All in all, exceptional fruit with bright acidity and ample texture.
