Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Napa Valley 2016
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Our grapes, selected from Oakville, one of Napa Valley's most revered and honored vineyard areas, offer the stylistic importance that only the Oakville soils provide - layers of ripe flavors, deep richness, and smooth texture. This Cabernet features aromas of freshly cut cherries, French plum, dried herbs, and toasted oak coupled with fine leather, all providing beautiful aromatic harmony. On the palate, the wine maintains the regal theme with rich mahogany, red cherry, and cassis along with freshly ground cocoa nibs yielding to a smooth, meandering texture and resounding finish.
“What strikes me most about the Yoshiki 2016 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon is the harmony between fruit, texture, and aromatics. The wine presents a true beginning, middle, and end, where each part is unique yet truly integrated with smooth body and opulence. This harmonious integration and smoothness in wine is of tremendous importance to Yoshiki - perhaps the result of being a musician, making harmony and balance, regardless of whether in music or in wine. I personally enjoy tasting with Yoshiki. He is a true aficionado and I appreciate how he looks at each individual aspect of the wine as a crucial note within a magical symphony.”
A comment from Yuko and Shin Kibayashi who are the authors of Kamino Shizuku “Drop of God”
This has the signature aroma of Oakville, synonymous to high quality vineyards, and such soft and silky tannins on the palate. f the Y by YOSHIKI California wines are called “smart casual” wines, this Y by YOSHIKI Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon should be called a “black-tie” wine with a tenderness and approachability that reflects Yoshiki’s personality and philosophy. This wine is history in the making.
