About the Vineyard:
Winemaker Nick Goldschmidt makes his Oakville Game Ranch in a very approachable, elegant style. Sourced from the eastern-end of Oakville Cross Rd, the soils here transition from volcanic red clay to brown, gravelly loam. They offer exceptionally good drainage which controls vigor, produce smaller berries and ultimately wines with deeper concentration. Soil water-holding capacity is sufficient enough to prevent dehydration, thus protecting the critical fruit flavor-to-alcohol balance. Goldschmidt Game Ranch shows gorgeous fruit, ripe tannins, and savory minerality.

Vintage Notes:
A fantastic vintage. Shows broader mid-palate weight and concentration than the previous three vintages. Tannin development was nearly perfect--fully ripe and silky smooth. Drought conditions continued throughout 2013 and the summer in Oakville was long and sunny. We picked before the mid-October rains. Yields were a little lower than 2012. As expected, the berry size was especially small from lack of rain in late May and early June and the wine shows a nicely focused intensity of flavor and bright acidity. Deep, rich, and structural best describe this vintage.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
Pair this Cabernet Sauvignon with a hearty meal, like an aged-gouda cheeseburger topped with crispy fried onions, medium-rare sirloin steak, portabello or porcini mushroom dishes and hard cheeses, such as aged cheddar or gouda.
