Twelve Bottle Sampler – Three Districts of Single-Vineyard Entrepreneur Cabernets
Oakville’s terroir, or more easily understood as the combination of climate, plant and soil, is undeniably the best in not only Napa Valley, but the best in all North America for the expression in the Bordeaux varieties raised there. At the north border of Oakville sits our chosen site, the Renteria 360 Vineyard, both owned and operated by the talented vineyard manager, Oscar Renteria. It is a gravel and loam soil type on the Valley floor, that while well drained, requires very little water allowing it to follow nature’s lead quite well. The vineyard was planted in the early 2000’s and today is producing wines that are truly world class. Brands sharing in the spoils from 360 include Chappellet, Sojurn, B Cellars, Frank Family, Venge, and Darioush to name a few.
