Vineyard:

Charming Creek Vineyard

About the Vineyard:
The Oakville district is the heart and soul of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, where the coolness of the south meets up-valley warmth in perfect equilibrium. Oakville isn’t too hot; it isn’t too cold. It’s just right. That’s why Cabernet Sauvignon from Oakville so perfectly expresses the essential qualities of the varietal in deep, complex wines that can last for decades. Charming Creek is located on Route 29 just north of Oakville Cross Rd. The old Clone 7 Cabernet Sauvignon vines here give perfumed aromatics but also silkiness, deep color, power and richness. Also typical of Clone 7, the wines age very gracefully and show good acidity and structure when older. After 10 years this vineyard will still show dark fruits and supple tannins.
Additional Winemaker Notes:
  • Made from Cabernet fruit of 39 year-old vines
  • Aged 20 months in 100% French Oak barrels (25% new, 75% 2-3 year old barrels)

Food Pairing Suggestions:
This deeply concentrated, dark fruit-driven Cabernet Sauvignon needs food pairings and preparations to match and balance it. Experiment with proteins like pepper-crusted tuna steak, NY strip or roasted lamb and duck. Compliment with roasted cremini mushrooms, creamed spinach and potatoes au gratin. Or try a rich, cream sauce over veggie stuffed enchiladas. For cheese pairings, try firm, semi-firm, or hard cheeses with a bit of age, including Gouda and Cheddar or Manchego and Petite Basque.
