A Romeo and Juliet story, straight out of Oakville.

In the Napa Valley, Oakville is synonymous with Cabernet Sauvignon. Most of the legendary Cabernets have come either from vineyards west of Highway 29, or from the far east side of the appellation, along the Silverado Trail and rising into the mountains above it.

The wines from these bookends of Oakville are very different. The soils are different, the orientation to the sun is different, the growers are different. But time and time again, both areas have proven to produce the valley’s greatest wines. These vineyards are indisputably world class.

“A wine that needs to be tasted to be believed.”

—Jeff Ames

Our East Meets West 100% Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon is literally one barrel from the east of the appellation and one from the west. You can probably guess the sources, but we’re not at liberty to name the vineyards. The wine is mostly fermented in barrel from start to finish. We’ve played around with an East-West Oakville blend before, but the 2014 turned out so beautifully we had to bottle it. The result is silk and power combined in such a way that makes it almost impossible to stop drinking.

The palate weight is rich in the extreme, but with no hint of angles or edges to the tannin profile. There are mostly black fruits here, with blackberries, black cherries and very dark and intense chocolate and meats.
