This classic Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon starts with aromas of black currant, dried thyme and cedar. Flavors of black cherry, strawberry coulis and vibrant fruit, followed by fine tannins and an elegant soft finish.
The vineyards for our 2017 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon are grown in the eastern edge of the Oakville AVA, near the Vaca Mountains. Oakville is known for moderate climate that encourages smooth, well-balanced wines of finesse.
The 2017 vintage started much wetter than in recent memory. We had many rainy days. The grape vines had an abundance of groundwater available, and grew vigorously until summer when the ground started to dry out. As harvest continued the conditions became more normal, and the quality of the grapes were high. The 2017 harvest was one of the longest harvest seasons at Black Stallion Estate Winery. Overall quality of the wines are stunning.
