This sub-section of the Oakville AVA is renowned for superb, richly-textured Cabernet Sauvignon. The Game Ranch is an old river bottom made up of very rocky, well draining soils influenced by the primarily volcanic composition of the Vaca Mountains: gravelly alluvium covered by shallow gravelly loam and in some places interspersed with large boulders. In this stressful, low moisture environment, the vines struggle to put everything they can into the development of the fruit. With perfect control over the watering of this vineyard site we are able to coax the vines to produce grapes of great concentration and exceptional quality. Exemplary sustainable farming practices provided dense clusters with perfect flavor and maturity.

Wine EnthusiastThick and rich, this has saddle and tobacco going on, alongside leather and smoke. A meaty, gamy note akin to bacon also characterizes the wine, as well as jammy blackberry and clove.

Wine SpectatorThough rich and extracted, with dark berry, dried herb and fresh-turned earth notes, this features tannins that are dry and edgy on the finish, lending this a somewhat clipped aftertaste. Drink now through 2020. 823 cases made.
