2016 Sojourn Oakville cabernet sauvignon
Vintage : 2016
Country : USA
Region : Oakville Ranch, Napa Valley
We source our Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from highly regarded vineyards in both Napa and Sonoma counties. From the Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III in the renowned Rutherford appellation to the Oakville Ranch Vineyard in Oakville, each site contributes its own unique character to the fruit. Our philosophy of minimal intervention in the cellar gives each wine a terroir-driven personality that expresses itself fully in the finished wine.
Oakville Ranch Vineyard is a rugged 330-acre estate, tucked into a rocky shelf 1,400 feet above the Napa Valley floor. The ranch is in the foothills of the Vaca Mountains on the far eastern edge of the renowned Oakville District AVA. This unique setting allows the vineyard to take advantage of the cooling breezes of the Pacific Ocean and the warm, dry air of the Napa Valley. The combination of rocky, clay, loam and basalt soils exert a heavy influence providing structure, power and depth in this wine. The vineyard was replanted in 2006 by esteemed organic viticulturist Phil Coturri, and quickly has established a reputation for producing some of the best Cabernet Sauvignon in Napa Valley. This wine has tremendous depth, finesse and aromatic intensity.
