O’CONNELL FAMILY VINEYARDS
OAK KNOLL DISTRICT NAPA VALLEY 2011
Our estate Cabernet Sauvignon reflects a sense of place
A wine that authentically speaks of its terroir- a cooler climate Cabernet Sauvignon that grows in diverse soils from lean gravel/sand to rich loam, surrounded by a diverse ecco-system of flora supporting the overall health of our certified organic vineyard blocks.
Signature rich aromatics are your first impression of the OCFV Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon. Then the exotic flavors unfold- red berry fruits, tobacco, cedar, our traditional hint of lavender. The Cabernet includes a small percentage of Petite Verdot, that grows next to the lavender field. The 2011 vintage was a cool growing year, which evolved into a well structured wine with gracefully expression of fruit. The wine has 4 years of aging in French oak, a rare attribute that allows gentle integrated of tannins, fruit and oak elements, creating a wine that is ultimately smooth and expressive.
