2019 Sojourn Oakville cabernet sauvignon
Vintage : 2019
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 has become one of the most sought-after vineyards by Napa winemakers for top quality Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a rugged 330-acre estate tucked into a rocky shelf overlooking Screaming Eagle. Sojourn sources from three distinct blocks that combine to create a balanced wine with outstanding aging potential. It is farmed organically by the esteemed Phil Coturri in red, volcanic soils on steep inclines. We were fortunate to receive a 97 point rating on the exceptional 2019 vintage of this wine. The vineyard excelled in 2019 and the resulting wine is a collector’s treat, offering tremendous depth and aromatic intensity.
In 2019 we produced Cabernet Sauvignon from three vineyards in Oakville to create this robust and generous Cabernet Sauvignon. This blend is dominated by Oakville Ranch Vineyard. Located in the hills among famous neighbors Dalla Valle, Pedregal and Backus vineyards, Oakville Ranch produces powerful, rich, structured wines. Cabernet Sauvignon wines from two other vineyards along Skellenger Lane were blended in to add expressive fruit character and lush tannins. The resulting wine offers layers of dark red and blue fruit flavors with hints of cocoa and dried herbs. This is a rich and vibrant wine that can be enjoyed now, yet will age for 15+ years.
