On the nose, black cherry mixes with wet stone and a lingering scent of cedar. On the palate, the wine has a full body and velvety texture with silky tannins. Black stone fruits evolve into floral notes, a hint of bitter chocolate and mocha. While this wine is approachable early, its richness, tannin structure and balanced acidity will allow it to age gracefully for years to come.
 

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The Tamber Bey Oakville Estate Vineyard is located at the southern end of Napa Valley’s famous Oakville Appellation, just north of Yountville. It has gravel/loam soil that isrelatively shallow and well suited for Cabernet Sauvignon. The site enjoys early morning fog and late afternoon breezes influenced by the San Francisco Bay to the south. To encourage competition for sun, water and nutrients, Tamber Bey planted more than 9,500 vines in a tight planting formation on 3 acres.
