' Quintessential - Samuel Charles Oak Knoll Cabernet Sauvignon

Samuel Charles Oak Knoll Cabernet Sauvignon 2020


This wine immediately impresses with dark purple hues in the glass. The nose offers hints of plum, black cherry and currant. This exotic dark fruit is expected from this area of Oak Knoll, found at the benchlands of the southern Mayacamas Range. Intense and complex, the palate has the pleasing structure and weight of a top Napa Cabernet. It has an excellent balance with added notes of vanilla and spice, contributing to a silky mouthfeel leading to a lingering finish.
