Gabrielle’s Flagship Wine
CASK 321 History: Equilateral Cask 321 Cabernet Sauvignon is a signature wine for Vintner, Gabrielle Leonhard. Her first release- a 350 case production of the 03 vintage- was a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Cabernet Franc. Cask 321 symbolizes the blend ratio, which will remain the same evermore.
“GABRIELLE LIMITED Cabernet Sauvignons represent my expression of classic Cabernet blends that capture individual varietal character and Napa’s varied terroir with the goal of producing wines of exquisite balance and finesse.” – Gabrielle
75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc
The elegance of Cabernet Sauvignon meets the earthiness & tobacco, cedar notes of Cabernet Franc- its parent. The close relationship of these two varietals creates a wine that smoothly glides through your palate.
Cabernet Sauvignon is grown at the organically grown O’Connell Family Estate Vineyard Creek Block, prized for its ability to harmonize the flavor components into a seamless integrated tasting experience- smooth and elegant. The Cabernet Franc comes from Oakville, where warm daytime temperatures ripen the fruit to express the rich earthiness of the varietal.
If you like Cabernet and Chocolate (add a touch of our Cabernet Sauvignon Sea Salt for a an ultimate bite of heaven)- this is your wine! Great with all cuts of beef- grilled or roasted, lamb and game meats such as venison and elk.
