ABOUT THIS WINE
With a rich history of grape growing dating back to the 1870s, the small agricultural town of Oakville has gained a reputation for producing world-class wines in the heart of Napa Valley. Today, there is no doubt that Cabernet Sauvignons is the definitive red grape variety grown in the region. From the 2011 vintage, a fantastic example of this style is the ONE Cabernet Sauvignon, which is made with organic grapes grown near Opus One.
93 POINTS - "Ripe, juicy and complex. The wine immediately opens up with expressive aromas of dark fruits, licorice, black olives, leather and tobacco. On the palate, the concentrated flavors explode with lively notes of dark cherry, blackberry, blueberry and dark chocolate truffle; firm tannins; silky texture; and a kiss of cedar on the lingering finish." - Chris Sawyer
This 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon opens up with dusty loam and blackberry fruit that give way to a very pure blueberry essence. A smooth and silky entry leads to a balance of juicy fruit and earth. Tobacco leaf and cedar notes complement the plum and dark cherry characters in the mid-palate. The tannins are expressive without being overly aggressive, making this a great food pairing wine for many dishes.
