The majestic Stag's head is the perfect symbol for these new wines from Dennis and Stephen D. Kreps. Like the Stag, a large male deer indigenous to Europe but now found as far away as Argentina and New Zealand, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc have taken root in vineyards across most of the New World. The symbol best represents the melding old world varietals and basic winemaking techniques with New World technology and innovation. These wines are truly the 'best of both worlds.”
Renowned Napa Valley winemaker Robert Pepi is the magician behind these stellar wines. Grapes for the Oak Knoll Cabernet Sauvignon come from a vineyard located on the benchlands of the Mayacamas Mountain Range, where the region's best terrior is found. The Sauvignon Blanc grapes are grown in the High Valley AVA of Lake County, CA. At nearly 2,000 feet elevation, they are some of the highest and best Sauvignon Blanc vineyards in the state.
The label is named after Dennis Kreps’ two sons. It expresses the great pride he has in them as well as the wines.
