Private Reserve
Cabernet Sauvignon

Oakville, Napa Valley


Wine Spots Private Reserve wines are an expression of provenance and varietal personality. I craft our Private Reserve Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon to showcase the unique terroir of the Oakville appellation, the world's preeminent Cabernet Sauvignon wine growing region in the famed Napa Valley. The final result is a wine that is a true expression of the Oakville wine "spot".

Beautifully deep garnet colors greet you in the glass, followed by bold, black fruit aromas. A rich, full-bodied palate is complemented by dark black fruit flavors with notes of black licorice. Aged in French oak barrels, the long and lively finish is backed by fine, velvety tannins and balanced acidity.

"This limited release Cab with its location pedigree offers an elegant mouthfeel. Dried violets, sage, and clove converge with old world acidity and an earthy nature. Black fruit emerges alongside tobacco and anise for a lengthy, satin-lined finish."

Cellar Selection. Garnet black color. Aromas and flavors of green herbs, prickly pear cactus, and bell pepper, black berry, black currant, and worn leather with a satiny, bright, dry medium-to-full body and a warming, involved, long finish... This Napa Cab has an excellent interplay of fruit and herb flavors that should gain weight and complexity with decanting or cellaring.

Wine Spots Napa Valley vineyard

Oakville, Napa Valley, California

Oakville is one of the world's iconic Cabernet Sauvignon wine growing regions, where the unique combination of soil composition and weather produces elegant, age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignon wines. Focus is placed in the selection of grapes from Oakville vineyard lots that express the intensity, purity, and diversity of this region. Soils range from compacted sedimentary rock to gravelly loam and alluvium; very well-draining, forcing the vine roots deep into the soil. The result is a superb, richly-textured Cabernet Sauvignon wine.
