A classic Napa Valley growing season and harvest provided an abundance of quality grapes from which winemakers had to choose in 2012. From spring bud break, through flowering, fruit set, and ripening, conditions were ideal. A consistent stretch of warm summer weather, without large heat spikes and with plenty of cool and foggy nights, ripened grapes to perfection before late rains appeared at the end of October
Our 2012 Oso Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautiful dark garnet in color, and is well-balanced with a supple, elegant texture. Dark berry and toffee aromas lead to lush ripe blackberry flavors, accented with and subtle notes of toasted vanilla.
