2016 OAKVILLE WINEGROWERS “THE OAKVILLE CUVEE” CABERNET SAUVIGNON (3L) DOUBLE MAGNUM
Arguably THE rarest significant wine produced in Napa Valley, with a mere 100 magnums and 50 double magnums produced (roughly 33 cases,) Oakville Cuvée is the ultimate prize for your wine cellar. Immersed in superior pedigree, this absolutely brilliant wine, perfectly portrays the essence of Napa Valley’s prized Oakville appellation. With an All-Star lineup of Oakville producers contributing, the list includes some of Napa Valley’s most iconic Cult Cabernets (see the list at the bottom of the page)… Each are members of the Oakville Winegrowers association, and contribute a small amount of extraordinarily high-quality wine in collaboration to produce a one-of-a-kind Cabernet Sauvignon, and benefiting the Oakville Winegrowers Association.
There are many contributing factors that make the terroir in Oakville, some of the best in the world for growing Cabernet. Over thousands of years, sediment has washed down from the hillsides creating notoriously complex earth. On the Western side, the soils are sandy and gravelly, which result in exceptional drainage, which helps produce large root systems and healthy vines. On the Eastern side, the soils are red in color and loaded with minerals and volcanic composites. In the middle, the soils are brilliantly complex, and when you combine all three of these areas together in one wine, the results simply have to be tasted to be believed… With packaging almost as stunning as what’s inside the bottle, each individual bottle is etched and numbered.
