Cornerstone Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Station Napa Valley 2015
WOW!! Now, THIS is how you start June off, oh yes! A fresh (albeit tiny…) new infusion of an all-time favorite, one-of-our-coolest-finds-ever OAKVILLE Cabs!
Look, if you love Oakville Cabernet (the land of Screaming Eagle, Harlan Estate, Dalla Valle and so many other top-tier producers…), there is NOTHING more important to do than snag this NOW. Go. Go! You must read the deets, but please just get it first. OAKVILLE! 2015! Almost 50% OFF! A special vineyard owned by UC DAVIS completely surrounded by the TO-KALON Vineyard!! Be one of the few on this planet to own a bottle…
University California Davis owns a vineyard literally smack in the middle of To-Kalon (click for the cool zoomable map) and just in front of one of Robert Mondavi Winery’s MOST cherished, prized blocks of To-Kalon. It dates back 50 years or so and is a research and learning outpost. Cornerstone is one of the very few who make a vineyard-designated wine from this hallowed ground and it usually sells out in record time...so getting a chunk of this to sell is pick-the-jaw-off-the-floor amazing. At this price???? Interestingly, lauded winemaker Charles Thomas (along with the talented Kari Auringer) actually made the Mondavi Reserves for many years (from To-Kalon) before moving on to Cardinale, Lokoya, and Verite, to name a few!
The wine ---- can you say POLISH? Not the language, the silky, velvety, ripe, satiny Cabernet brilliance…!! DEEP, intense black cherry fruit, that signature To-Kalon-like note of violets (reminds us of Margaux) and pure black currant, with dark cocoa and toasted spices...oh baby! Gorgeous, pure and a shocking deal from SUCH a unique place. What can we say? Don’t miss it! We DEFINITELY won’t see this again!
Cornerstone's tasting room has long been a favorite among those in the know visiting Napa. But their wines aren't widely distributed, so most people don't have a chance to try them...until now!
