Winemaker Notes

This wine personifies good old American Cabernet. Enticing aromas of cherries and vanilla give way to ripe figs and plums. Two years in American oak have softened the palate, making this a very drinkable Oakville Cabernet.

 

Husband and wife winemakers, Matt and Karen Meyers, make their Fluffy Billows Cabernet Sauvignon from a 4-acre Oakville vineyard. This 4-acre vineyard belonged to Matt's father, Justin, who was a founding partner of Silver Oak. For those of you who remember drinking Silver Oak in the '80's, their Bonny's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon was highly sought-after and had a cult-like following. The Meyer's 4-acres vineyard is Bonny's Vineyard. This is polished, elegant, rich Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. All French oak with only half new, the fruit is pure and elegant with the oak notes playing a supporting role. One of our favorite California Cabernets vintage to vintage.
