O’CONNELL FAMILY VINEYARDS
OAK KNOLL DISTRICT NAPA VALLEY 2012
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.
Cabernet Sauvignon 90% and Petit Verdot 10%
The 2012 vintage is classically Napa. Great fruit expression within a firm structure. The O’Connell Family Vineyard Estate signature style of provocative aromas of rich cassis and exotic undertones of thyme, rosemary and cedar fill your senses. With each sip, the flavors of cedar, wild mint, nutmeg, tobacco and dark chocolate linger on and on. A memorable wine that speaks of its distinctive terroir. Elegantly textured.
