2016 TEXTBOOK Mise en Place Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Napa Valley
Our “Mise en place” Cabernet Sauvignon comes from two very special single-vineyard sites located on the extreme eastern and western sides of the Oakville District abutting the rugged and dry Vaca Mountain and verdant Mayacamas mountain ranges. Superbly mature and well-drained Cabernet Sauvignon site on rocky, east-side of Oakville District AVA. The Merlot site is on west-side of Oakville, near To-Kalon and downslope from Harlan. These sub-sections of the Oakville AVA are renowned for superb, richly textured Cabernet Sauvignon and voluptuous Merlot. Classic Bordelaise winemaking. Unfiltered. 100% French, 50% new medium-toast
It is called “Mise en place” to reflect the preparation and diligence exercised in the vineyards and winery. We believe it is a “textbook” example of this noble variety grown in this outstanding appellation.
