where distinctive wines reflect extraordinary vineyards
Although 2014 was another drought year, a lighter, lean canopy and moderate temperatures allowed gradual ripening and full flavor development. We restricted ML and carefully selected our oak regimen to preserve the freshness and layered flavors of the vintage and the singular grapes from the Bobcat block. The results are stunning, a wine only possible at Oakville Ranch.
Our 2014 Chardonnay is a beautiful clear light straw, brilliant at the edges, with lovely, fresh floral aromas of lemon blossom and a hint of fennel pollen. In the mouth, this wine is lively with lemon meringue and a slight Jordan almond character mid-palate, evolving to white peach, apricot, vanilla and lightly toasted pistachio. The finish is delicate but lingering, with a slight minerality.

In the tradition of Napa Valley’s early grape growers, the varietals for Oakville Ranch Field Blend are grown on a single Oakville hillside vineyard block, then harvested and fermented together, producing a lively, fruit-driven wine that’s perfect for everyday consumption. A blend of Zinfandel, Primitivo and Petite Sirah, our Field Blend offers consumers an affordable, food-friendly red wine that’s deliciously drinkable on release, but will age comfortably in the cellar for several years.
