This hidden gem of a vineyard is nestled among its neighboring Cabernet Sauvignon vines at Screaming Eagle in the northern most portion of the Oakville appellation. The Skellenger vineyard offers the richness of the Oakville valley floor with the structure of hillside fruit. These vines provide a tremendous amount of concentration from its tannins, while maintaining its richness and approachability right out of the bottle.
Fruit for the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville was picked two days before the fires in 2017—a prescient choice that resulted in a beautiful wine. The nose offers Morello cherries and bright pops of red berry fruit with notes of graphite, cedar and violets. The full-bodied palate is lushly fruited, ripe and finely grained, with fantastic juicy character and a finish that continues to blossom for some time. This is appealing now but will age well in bottle.
