A long and mild growing season, coupled with soils that range from deep and fertile to rocky and dry, make the Oak Knoll District well suited for an incredible range of winegrapes. Indeed, the OKD is the most grape diverse sub-region in Napa and we grow nine different varieties just within our own estate vineyards.

Harvest Date: October 18, 2011Tasting Notes: Seamless from start to finish beginning with aromas of dark cherry and milk chocolate intertwined with notes of toasted vanilla. Flavors of bright cherry then dark berry, plum, coffee and chocolate follow. Well rounded with elegantly woven tannins giving traction and dimension to the lingering flavors on the palate.

TASTING NOTES: Intense with aromas of dark ripe berry, blue and black fruit, dark current, black and green peppercorn, cedar, coffee, smoky clay and musky cologne near the back.

The center of the appellation is dominated by rich fluvial soils, which are deposited over time by the rivers meandering path and regular flooding. These deep fertile soils make for fruity and charming wines (no strict mountain tannins here!). Things get slightly more complicated in the west, where a small alluvial fan sits at the base of Mount Veeder; here the soil is more gravelly and the terrain slightly undulating. From a climatic perspective, the regular fog keeps the temperatures down, which means the wines tend to be among the more elegant and understated in Napa Valley.

In 1851 Joseph W. Osborne was one of the first people to introduce fine vinifera varieties to the area, including Zinfandel, after purchasing an 800 acre plot of land in Rancho Napa. He named it Oak Knoll Ranch and as early as 1857 was already winning awards in the Bay Area for his wine made from "Foreign Grapes." Despite this early recognition, viticulture was not the most important agricultural activity here during this time, with only around 5% of available land used for vineyards in the 1880's. Then, local wine production declined even further with the onset of Phylloxera in the late 1890's and Prohibition in 1920.

This single vineyard Merlot from Oak Knoll District of Syrah was picked at perfect ripeness to produce a balanced, rich wine. Blackcurrant, anise, cedar and cigar box aromas arise to flavors of ripe plum and zest dried blackberry, cracked pepper and licorice. In the finish this wine is all finesse with fully-ripe tannins.

Napa's first black, female winemaker, Victoria Coleman is celebrating her 15th vintage at Lobo Wines and you want to give these a try! She aims to achieve complexity, finesse & balance in all the wines she produces, and we all agree she has achieved all three.

The bay cloud cover keeps Oak Knoll cool during the day which allows Cabernet Sauvignon to have a long hang time. Red wines from Oak Knoll still have great tannin and structure as with all of the Napa Valley, but often with more delicate herbal and floral aromas.

PRODUCT OVERVIEW:Eshcol is made by Trefethen Family Vineyards, a third-generation family-owned winery that crafts juice sourced exclusively from estate-owned vineyards in the Oak Knoll District. Dedicated to the purest expression of fruit and terroir, the Trefethen family farms sustainably in order to preserve the land and produce wines that offer a distinct sense of place.Eshcol Red is an authentic and approachable introduction to the Trefethen portfolio. Sourced entirely from the family's Main Ranch vineyard, it is a unique blend each year, featuring the strengths of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot complemented by the addition of smaller amounts of other French varietals. The 2020 vintage is a blend of 53% merlot, 31% cabernet sauvignon, 14% malbec, 1% petit verdot, and 1% cabernet franc.Aged for 14 months in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels, it has ripe, juicy flavors of plum, cherry, and raspberry layered withnotes of clove, black pepper, and cocoa. Full-bodied and beautifully balanced, it has a silky mouthfeel and long-lasting finish (from winery notes).

Luminus is fresh and lively with aromas of white floral blossom, honeysuckle and ripe citrus fruits. The intriguing aromas unfold into layers of flavor where white apricot, fresh apple, essence of bergamot, and lemon curd notes are interwoven with whipped meringue, spiced Asian pear and delicate almond notes. The judicious use of French oak offers subtle nutty spice character and the bâttonage treatment provides an unexpectedly plush mouthfeel and texture with mouthwatering crisp acidity leading to a long, pleasing finish with delicate hints of stone minerality.

Herzog's Special Reserve Oak Knoll Cabernet Sauvignon Generation VIII is made from grapes grown at the Padis Vineyard in the Oak Knoll District of California's Napa Valley, where the grapes benefit from the ideal climate of warm days, cool nights, and crisp foggy mornings. Rich aromas of black cherry, tobacco, and cedar fill the nose, and bold notes of ripe plum and dark cherry melt on the tongue. One can detect an undercurrent of toasted almonds and vanilla flavors as the wine moves to the back of the palate. Serve with thick grilled steaks, rich stew, or dark chocolate.

Steve Matthiasson has been changing the landscape of California's wine industry for 25 years. A punk rock-gardener who settled in Napa Valley during the 90's "Bigger is Better" escapade, Steve looked around, shook his head, and began to make things better.In the famous 1976 Judgement of Paris tasting, California wines beat France at its own game. But California viticulture had changed drastically in the years since, and the new farming had changed the wines. Extreme ripeness and high yields were the goals, instead of terroir and finesse--and all sorts of manipulations made it happen. Growers wasted California's precious water irrigating 100-year-old dry-farmed vineyards. Fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, and pesticides carpet bombed anything that was left.Something needed to be done. And Steve led the charge.Dubbed California's Godfather of Sustainable Viticulture, after he wrote the literal manual in 1999, Steve moved into consulting. The needle--slowly--started moving back towards balance, both in the environment and the wines themselves. And Steve rose to the very top of his field, managing legendary estates like Araujo and Stag's Leap Vineyards. But he and his wife, Jill, wanted to make their own wines. Control the process from the ground up. And they kicked it off in 2003.The resulting wines are not only compelling, they're illuminating. Hundreds of little decisions in the vineyards, subtle tweaks on everything from cover crops to canopy management, result in fruit that expresses its site beautifully. He truly crafts his wines in the vineyard.These are wines, like the classics of California's Golden Age, inspired by the great wines of Europe but not beholden to them. They are not replicas. Steve uses what's at hand--sunshine and wind, hot days and cold nights, pioneer knowledge that was lost, and newfound techniques--to make something new and timeless. Matthiasson wines posses the California Magic, a thing found nowhere but here. 041b061a72
