OAK KNOLL DISTRICT NAPA VALLEY 2007
The Inaugural Release!
A wine that authentically speaks of its terroir- a cooler climate Cabernet Sauvignon that grows in diverse soils from lean gravel/sand to rich loam, surrounded by a diverse ecco-system of flora supporting the overall health of our certified organic vineyard blocks.
A dense wine that satisfies the senses- provocative aromas of dark fruit laced with exotic spice draw you into the glass to explore this richly textured yet elegantly integrated wine. Flavors of cedar, nutmeg, cardamom, tobacco, red fruits and dark chocolate make this a memorable wine that speaks of its terroir.
