Home to some of the most sought-after Cabernet Sauvignon in America, Napa Valley’s Oakville district covers the stretch of valley floor and foothills between the Vaca and Mayacamas Mountains. This AVA is home to the legendary To Kalon Vineyard as well as many powerhouse wineries including Screaming Eagle, Silver Oak, Robert Mondavi, and Opus One. The climate is generally warm and agreeable and the soil is well-drained, resulting in year after year of favorable vintages.
Cabernet here is often bottled varietally but is also popular in [Bordeaux blends]. Oakville wines are known for their rich texture, structured tannins, dark and brooding fruit, often with a healthy dose of new oak. These age-worthy and prestigious wines are favored by collectors throughout the world.
