2018 Amulet Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville
Located on the eastern edge of Oakville in the Vaca Mountain Range, Oakville Ranch Vineyard is 330 acres of rugged land with plantings dating back to 1989. Of the 66 planted acres, we focus on two blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon for the 2018 Napa Valley vintage. With a full dose of afternoon sun and a cool afternoon breeze from San Pablo Bay, the vines are protected from excess heat. The result is ideal for small grape clusters—producing wines of unique depth and elegance.
The land is farmed by Phil Coturri, who is known for organic farming methods and a philosophy that balance in the vineyard yields balance in the glass. This is a certified organic farm that uses seasonal cover crops, insectaries, and nesting boxes for native birds.
Winemaker's Notes | In the glass, aromas of violets, wild sage, and fig transport you to a terroir of gravitas—Oakville Ranch Vineyard. On the palate, an unblemished texture is framed by a mineral-driven structure. A fine acidity and notes of hibiscus tea showcase depth and spark imagination on the finish.
