We source our Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from highly regarded vineyards in both Napa and Sonoma counties. From the Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III in the renowned Rutherford appellation to the Oakville Ranch Vineyard in Oakville, each site contributes its own unique character to the fruit. Our philosophy of minimal intervention in the cellar gives each wine a terroir-driven personality that expresses itself fully in the finished wine.
This wine, from the renowned Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III in Rutherford, offers big aromas and flavors of dark cherry, earth, and the mocha notes of the classic Rutherford Dust profile. Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III offered lower yields in 2019 with smaller clusters and tiny berries, resulting in a wine of great intensity.
Planted by Sojourn proprietor Craig Haserot in 2002, the Home Ranch Vineyard is tucked away in the southwest corner of Sonoma Valley, where it is warm enough to fully ripen Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2019 vintage offers exceptional structure, with fine grain tannins and a long finish.
Oakville Ranch Vineyard is a rugged 330-acre estate tucked into a rocky shelf overlooking Screaming Eagle and other icons of Napa Valley. Wine critics have begun singing its praises, including awarding the 2016 vintage a 98 point rating. The vineyard excelled in the exceptional 2019 vintage and the resulting wine offers tremendous depth, finesse and aromatic intensity.
Oakville Ranch Vineyard–the backbone of our Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon–dominates the blend of our generous and supple 2019 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine spent four weeks fermenting on skins to ensure that the tannins and fruit flavors were balanced. The resulting wine is rich and vibrant, offering vivid flavors of blackberry, raspberry, cassis and mocha.
