This 2017 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from both benchlands and hillside vineyards within the Oakville appellation. Small exceptionally intense fruit is hand harvested and sorted prior to a three day cold soak. Fermentation kicked off on the fourth day averaging 85° - 87° F bringing out the intense black currant, blackberry and dark chocolate complexity of this wine.
This is a big wine with beautifully integrated tannins and balanced French oak utilizing both new and second year barrels. The Spokesman 2017 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon is an affordable pleasure to be shared with dry-aged beef, Oso Bucco, good friends and simply quiet moments.
