- Goldschmidt Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon Hillary Goldsch 2014 Product #31944 (In Stock)
Oakville is the heart of Napa Cabernet both geographically and in style. This is pretty much the essence of Oakville Cab in a terrific vintage. It's old-fashioned Clone 7 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grown in sandy loam soils and harvested at just 3 tons per acre. 20 months in 25% new French oak rounds things out and adds a nice spice. Delicious right now and a fine wine to lay down for 5-15 years.
"This grows at a vineyard on Highway 29 just north of Oakville Cross Road; it’s clone 7 Cabernet planted in 1980 on sandy loam soils. The wine is relatively light in color and in its overall gracious impression, while still offering generous fruit richness in a fresh and friendly Cabernet. Simple and elegant."Wine Enthusiast 91 points
