“The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville was made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and was aged for 20 months in 100% new French oak. Sporting a deep garnet-purple color, it sings of warm cassis, baked black cherries and mulberries with a beautiful undercurrent of fragrant earth, menthol, crushed rocks, candied violets and cedar chest. The full-bodied palate has wonderful intensity, features tons of bright, crunchy, black fruit layers and lots of perfumed nuances, supported by a solid backbone of ripe grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with fantastic length and energy. Very impressive!” - Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

Winery Notes: “The Oakville region is known for producing some of the most sought after wines from the Napa Valley and is considered the ‘heart and soul of Napa Valley,’ where the up-valley warmth is balanced by the coolness from the southern appellations. This unique terroir produces Cabernet deep in color, with velvety tannic structure and balanced acids. Known for its rich and complex soils, Oakville Cabernet exudes dark fruits and blackcurrant.”  Thomas produces this limited Senses Cabernet in the quintessential Oakville style, aging the wine for 20 months in 100% new French oak which adds smoothness and nuances of dried fruits and spices.”
