2019 Red Wine, Oakville Station
From a legendary vineyard that is farmed by the University of California, Davis, this is a brilliant expression of Oakville terroir. The varietal percentages in this blend change a bit each vintage. We think the Merlot portion of the blend delivers classic juicy ripeness and a lifted sweet fruit flavor. The Cabernet Sauvignon has the backbone and acidity that brings a solid foundation to the blend. The Cabernet Franc offers a complex medley of lush dark berry flavors layer interwoven with notes of dark chocolate and black licorice. Lush and full-bodied in texture, the integrated tannins let you know this is ready now but would cellar well if you have the patience.
Varietal: 50% Merlot, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc
