Khoai Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
Grown at the iconic Oakville Ranch property located in the eastern foothills of Napa Valley's world-renowned Silverado Trail, this 100% varietal Cabernet Sauvignon beautifully captures the legendary character of Napa's inimitable hillside terroir.
This wine effortlessly broods with a medley of texturally rich yet strikingly elegant fruit highlighted by black forest cherry, ripe blackberry, blueberry preserves, and crème de cassis. Captivating hints of menthol, star anise, and cigar tobacco gently reveal layers of striking herbal complexity as impressions of roasted coffee bean, brûléed brown sugar, and bittersweet chocolate provide glimpses of delightfully restrained decadence. Fragrant notes of French vanilla, wild violet, cinnamon, and lavender softly contribute perfectly integrated aromatic charms while pleasant suggestions of smoke, iron, and volcanic rock simultaneously impart fascinatingly rugged earthiness. Although notably bold and concentrated on the palate this exhibits a distinct prioritization of balance and precision over sheer weight or power, and its soft satin-like tannin help to create a temptingly smooth mouthfeel that allows this Cabernet to be immensely enjoyable upon release yet still built to age for decades.
