Handwritten Wines

 

Handwritten 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, Oak Knoll 750ml

Up in the foothills of Mt Veeder, this stunning Cabernet from Oak Knoll is plush yet powerful from the very outset. Chalk full of great fruit that ranges from freshly picked black cherries to rich blackberry compote, this wine shows its true beauty from the second it hits the palette. Walking the line between power and finesse, the 2013 Oak Knoll is at once concentrated and rich yet supple and eminently drinkable on the finish. Makes a fantastic wine to finish a rewarding day of work or to book end your week on a glorious Sunday afternoon.

Harvest & Tasting Notes:

The growers of the Oak Knoll district call it the 'sweet spot' of the Napa Valley. Their bias aside, Oak Knoll does boast the longest growing season in the valley allowing for balanced ripeness in nearly every vintage. The bright acidity found in the Handwritten Oak Knoll Cabernet Sauvignon can be attributed to cool nights, a gift from the fog coming off of the nearby San Pablo Bay. Luscious flavors of crushed blackberries and Rainier cherry are made exotic by a dusting of clove, and nutmeg. Rain soaked earth and tobacco leaf add a grounding element and extend through a long and intriguing finish. Drink now with a one hour decant or cellar for five to seven years.
