Miner Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2001

SKU 830


Our voluminous 2001 Cab is nothing short of a hedonist's candy store convenienty bottled and ready to pour. We feel that without a doubt, the key to this wine rests squarely on the shoulders of the enormously compelling mountain grown fruit. Picked high above the valley floor, nearly 1000 feet above sea level, our Cab grapes reside within a low-yielding vineyard planted over rocky, volcanic soil. Deep, dark, rich and extremely focused, this is truly what great Oakville Cab is all about.

Wine EnthusiastA great success that showcases its origins in the rich, sweet tannins that support the well-ripened fruit. Blackcurrants, cassis, white chocolate and oaky vanilla flavors drink extraordinarily deep and long, in this soft wine. ItÍs almost a dessert, except itÍs dry.

Wine SpectatorA fleshy wine, with smooth cherry, plum and blackberry fruit that's supple and engaging, turning elegant and graceful. Drink now through 2008. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 2,000 cases made.

James Laube, 2004
