The Oakville appellation spans the Napa Valley from the Vaca Mountains in the east to the Mayacamas in the west. Within this storied terroir, our 25-acre Dos Olivos Vineyard—so named for the two stately olive trees that guard its entrance—has moderate temperatures and well-drained gravel and clay soils that yield Cabernet Sauvignon of exceptional structure and balance. The elegant red fruit character, supported by well-integrated tannins, picks up jammy, sweet raspberry and vanilla crème flavors. Inviting nuances of milk chocolate and a silky texture with balanced acidity keep bringing you back to the glass. Additional cellaring will reward the collector.
Epitome, crafted from our home estate vineyard in Stags Leap District, is a classic Cabernet Sauvignon made in exceptionally limited quantities from only the most remarkable vintages. The wine opens with intense aromas of blackberry, strawberry, and black currant, which mingle with elegant hints of cinnamon spice and cigar box. On the palate, flavors of deep black raspberry and cherry pie are accented by allspice and nutmeg and balanced by round tannins. Enjoy with osso buco or duck confit.
