Perched atop the Vaca Mountains at 1,400 feet of elevation at the eastern end of the Oakville sub-appellation, Oakville Ranch is planted in one of the Napa Valley’s most rugged landscapes.
The vineyard has a commanding view over the Napa Valley, and its elevation allows for the unique combination of sun exposure for optimum color. A direct shot to the San Pablo Bay, just a few miles south, offers a cooling ocean breeze during the mornings and afternoons that balances the renowned structure of Oakville. Our organically farmed blocks consist of Cabernet Sauvignon Clones 169 and 7. Two of the most aromatically profound Cabernet clones, their roots are settled in iron rich, eroded sandstone indicative of the site’s volcanic history. These complementary factors in accordance with the elevation, result in small, concentrated berries that produce wines of lushness and minerality.

Winemaker's Notes | The 2019 Amulet Estate Oakville Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon is a plush, opulent wine laced with inky dark fruit, sweet spice and chocolate. A 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 20 months in 65% new French oak. Medium to full-bodied, ripe, supple, and sexy on the palate, it has loads of fruit, no hard edges, and a great finish. 200 cases.

Winemaker's Notes | In the glass, aromas of violets, wild sage, and fig transport you to a terroir of gravitas—Oakville Ranch Vineyard. On the palate, an unblemished texture is framed by a mineral-driven structure. A fine acidity and notes of hibiscus tea showcase depth and spark imagination on the finish.
