Vine Cliff's Oakville Vineyard encompasses a hundred acre estate with various elevations and terraced slope orientations that range from valley floor to a bench vineyard at 680 feet elevation. Our wines are reflective of our unique and highly acclaimed terroir and made in a balanced style with layer upon layer of subtlety and complexity.
Aromas of blue and red fruits, tobacco and cocoa. The front palate is broad, rich and mouth coating and only punctuated briefly by chewy tannins before the wine builds through a long finish. Additional flavors on the finish include black tea and cocoa mole.
"Leathery and savory, this wine offers red currant and cedar, supported by lengthy tannins and lingering notes of toasted oak. The full-bodied palate holds its weight well, finishing with a lift of black pepper." V.B.
