The exceptional team at Oakville is made up of two accomplished winemakers: Sara Gott, internationally acclaimed for her success at Joseph Phelps and her brilliant stint at Quintessa, is our head winemaker. They also are proud to have Marie-Laure Ammons who, after working in France at Domaine Lejeune in Pommard, Chateau de Pressac Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Dulong Negociant in Bordeaux, Marie-Laure arrived in California in 1998 and joined the Oakville team in 2009.
The 2012 Exposure is a concentrated, full-bodied wine with a power and intense flavors of blueberry, black cherry and a hint of blackberry. There is a fair amount of spice and oak but they are balanced out nicely by firm tannins and a smooth acidity. This Cabernet begs to be paired with steak or lamb.
