This is a Spewcial Purchase - Our same great tasting oakville cabernet Sauvignon, but in a much smaller compact bottle. Called a Hal Bottle because its exactly half the regular size. This bottle allows you the ability to take it on picnics, travel by bicycle to the local eatery, or just share amongst someoine close during a private dinner for two.
The 2019 Vine Cliff Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep garnet-purple color. It prances out of the glass with scents of stewed plums, warm cassis, bay leaves and cedar chest. Suggestions of cinnamon stick and sandalwood with a waft of tobacco leaf rounds out the nose. The medium to full-bodied palate is coated with juicy black fruits and a plush texture; offering oaky accents and a herbal lift to finish

Looking at the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Estate, this beauty is all varietal and spent 20 months in 80% new French oak. Pauillac-like notes of darker currants, chocolate, lead pencil, and loamy earth all define the bouquet, and its full-bodied and beautifully balanced, with a seamless mouthfeel and a great finish.
94 Points - Wine Spectator (August 2022)
Quite ripe yet reserved in style, with a lovely core of black currant and plum reduction backed by ample tobacco, savory and iron accents. Shows serious tug of earth through the finish, but has the fruit keep pace.
94 Points - James Suckling (November 2021)
Blackberries, blackcurrants, cocoa, gravel, cloves and toasted walnuts on the nose. Rich and concentrated with a full body and firm, polished tannins. Long, plush and compact.
