An Artistic Expression of Cabernet Sauvignon Handcrafted by Gabrielle Collection
Gabrielle Collection is a series of boutique, luxury Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignons and Proprietary Cabernet blends, that show the artistry of Winemaker Gabrielle Leonhard O’Connell in their balance, suppleness and distinction as she brings the magic of the soil and sun into a glass of wine. They are inviting, food complimentary Napa Valley wines.
Gabrielle believes blending varietals and vineyards achieves the most expressive wine. Drawing from the organically farmed O’Connell Family Estate Vineyard in the Oak Knoll Appellation of Napa Valley, as well as other sustainably farmed vineyards, where the climate and soil are best suited to perfectly produce each varietal, she creates wines with richness and complexity. Consulting winemaker Mitch Cozentino, brings decades of expereince and accolades to the winemaking collaboration and expertise.
The winemaking style includes hand harvesting, hand punchdowns, use of moderate oak, minmalistic winemaking techniques to produce wines of purity that reflect the winemaker’s point of view, a sense of place and varietal characteristics. Extended aging in French oak for up to 3 years creates wine of great elegance and smoothness.
The O’Connell Family Estate Vineyard, Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley
Five specific blocks with individual soil structures and climatic subtleties enables the winemaking team to beautifully balance the aromas, flavors and structure of each Gabrielle Collection Napa Valley wine. The vineyard was created over millennium by the layers of forces: Dry Creek ancient creek bed, frequent flooding, volcanic action from the Vaca mountains, alluvial soil erosion from Mt Veeder, San Francisco Bay ocean bottom. Each grape block has specific influences and encounter variables as the grapes penetrate the soil.
