The Oakville Cuvee 2017

 

    Each year since 2005, the acclaimed member wineries of the Oakville Winegrowers Association have contributed small lots of their finest Cabernet Sauvignon to blend a micro-production of 50 double magnums and 100 magnums of the Oakville Cuvee. The Cuvée offers the collector an extraordinary opportunity to experience the best of Napa Valley’s premier growing region. There is no other wine that equally represents the spirit of an appellation and the camaraderie of its vintners. Each bottle is etched and numbered, a beautiful and rare addition to any wine cellar. The Oakville lots for this vintage were evaluated and blended by Winemaker Russell Bevan at Tench Vineyards & Winery. All proceeds from the sales of the Cuvee benefit our organization, to allow us to promote and protect this precious winegrowing region. For more information, or to acquire, please contact us.

Magnum $900      Double Magnum $1800

Winemaker’s Notes: The 2017 Cuvée shows an intensity of color in the glass, deep violet and purple, owing to the beautiful extraction and depth of this vintage. On the nose you’ll find dark chocolate, blackberry, and some toasty, nutty elements that bring to mind roasted almonds. The palate starts bright and juicy, leading to an elegant dark berry mid-palate, well-defined structure and great density. The tannins are smooth and the finish is long-lasting and luscious. It tastes like Oakville.

 

We wish to thank TriCorBraun and M.A. Silva for their donation of glass and corks.
