Thank you to every person who shared their stories and memories surrounding Bellacosa. You are the reason I created my Oakville Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. The Oakville Reserve is a single vineyard cabernet intended to express gratitude for supporters of Bellacosa, as well as to encourage everyone to continue creating those lasting moments and memories, one bottle at a time. In fact, it’s a wine that has its own unique story…
The Mystique of the Oakville Reserve…
Between the Mayacumas and Vaca Mountains, you will find the hardy grapes I used to make my Oakville Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine’s opulent structure results from the life story of its grapes. They never sleep, but work night and day to grow. They drink deeply from dark, iron-rich soil. They stretch into the afternoon sun. They quiver in the Mayacumas’ cool shadows.
If you walk through Oakville’s revered vineyards, you feel a different energy in the air…a magnetic pull of the earth. You can almost sense a vibration coming from the soil, filled with stones that the grapes like to coil their roots around. To say Oakville is a special place to birth a Cabernet doesn’t do it justice. This particular section of earth is so full of life and limitless possibility that you can actually taste it.
And the incredible grapes there, suspended between the soil and the sky, are plump with a sort of magic that comes from their struggle to grow…a struggle that gives them character and adds nuances to the wine that say so many things, yet leave you speechless.
The Struggle and Story You Can Taste
My Oakville Cabernet was also crafted with impeccably perfect timing, producing a pop of plum, mouthwatering notes of blackberry and cherry, and a gorgeous, silky, robust, intriguing experience on the palate. Rounded out with lush tannins, this wine a powerful story I am eager for you to experience and to share.
Yes, just when you thought that Bellacosa couldn’t be any more beautiful, I bring to you Oakville Reserve, which takes Bellacosa to a whole new level.
It is undeniably—and unapologetically—unforgettable…
