Our philosophy is that most of our winemaking takes place in the vineyard, and this, our signature cabernet, is the perfect example. Showcasing the best of the Oakville appellation, this signature wine balances fruit and structure, yielding incredible depth and complexity.
More unexpected is the suppleness of the tannins and overall level of approachability. If you're interested in a complex, focused wine that can be enjoyed while young, yet rewards patience, the Oakville Estate is for you.
Tasting Notes: Strikingly layered aromas of mocha, cassis, anise, black currants, blueberry and black cherry. Flavors of blackberry jam and boysenberry, with silken tannins and an elegant finish.

"Concentrated in black currant, cedar and olive, this has subdued tannins that are chalky and smooth. The aroma takes on pretty lavender and violet connotations that allure. Dried herb and black pepper mingle on the finish. This wine is lovely now, but should cellar nicely through 2020. *Cellar Selection*"
James Suckling – 91 Points
"A big and rich wine with lots of ripe fruit and soft, velvety tannins. Not much backbone but plenty of sexy fruit at the finish."
