SKU: 2013 Okapi Cabernet

"Striking, offering rich flavors of loamy earth and dark berry, accented by hints of licorice and cedary oak, with a supple texture and a luxurious finish. The tannins hang in there but don't dominate. The finish is complex and lingering. Drink now through 2027."

-JL, Wine Spectator

 

Opulent and sophisticated, with impossibly aromatic complexity, this 100% estate grown Cabernet fulfills the early promise of the vineyard. Sink into waves of dark toasted coriander, squished summer blackberries, tea leaves, cassis, roasted meats, cherry cordial, tobacco and vanilla mocha. The decadent palate opens with rich velvet and silk, presenting blackberries, spicy mesquite, and wild strawberry - all impeccably integrated, balanced and elegantly refined for enjoyment now through 2033.

Being a Southern California resident, I've enjoyed a day/night wine tasting/jazz concert trip to Napa at least 2 - 3 times a year for the past 30 years. The Okapi Cabernet is by far the best, the absolute best, I've tasted in those 30 years. This wine will become a staple in my home to be shared with only my favorite Friends and Family!
