The 2016 Oakville Cab from Liparita stands as one of the most successful Cabernet offers we've ever done. First of all, the 2016 vintage is considered one of the best in years. Napa Valley Cabernet producers and critics alike were all in agreement about the amazing quality of the vintage. Secondly, few AVA’s can hold a candle to the roster of wines that hail from the Oakville sub-appellation. From pioneers like Mondavi and Heitz to powerhouse brands like Groth, Far Niente, and Opus One, through “cult Cabernet” producers Dalla Valle, Harlan Estate and Screaming Eagle; tells a condensed story of Oakville. This is 100% pure Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is gorgeous displaying all the tell-tale Cabernet characteristics of black currants (cassis), blackberry, black cherry, dried herbs and a touch of cedar. This is a premium, top-tier Cab that delivers on every level. We were sold out of this wine for some time now but the winery once again opened up their cellar for us to grab another cache. Enjoy while it lasts.
