Meyer Family Cabernet The Gravels 2019, Oakville, Napa Valley, California

The Oakville name is synonymous with excellence in winemaking and is a viticultural treasure among the many fine Napa Valley AVAs. This narrow band of vineyards that slices across the central part of the Valley, from the Vaca Mountains on the eastern side to the Mayacamas range on the west, is, first and foremost, associated with world-class Cabernet Sauvignon. Oakville’s unique combination of well-drained, sandy-gravelly soils and the cooling effects of fog and breezes from the San Pablo Bay – not mention the stellar reputation of its wines – have earned this tiny section of Napa Valley the status as California’s most revered viticultural area. This wine is a combination of Bonny’s and Le Bon Bon from the gravel part of the vineyard. It uses both French (Le Bon Bon’s signature) and American oak (bonny’s signature). This is the first vintage EVER produced and only 80 cases were made.
