It is called "Mise en place" to reflect the preparation and diligence exercised in the vineyards and winery. We believe it is a "textbook" example of this noble variety grown in this outstanding appellation.

"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon “Mise en Place” from Oakville is unquestionably the star of the show and checks in as 89% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Merlot brought up in 50% new French oak. It reveals a healthy purple color as well as a ripe, sexy bouquet of plums, black cherries, charcuterie, and leafy herbs. With medium to full-bodied richness, ripe tannin, and a mouthfilling texture, it’s a seamless Oakville Cabernet that can be drunk today or cellared for 10-15 years."

An array of rich dark-plum, blueberry and chocolate aromas leading to a palate that has a very supple, even and smoothly rendered textural quality. Long, ripe and plush finish. A blend of 89 per cent cabernet sauvignon and 11 per cent merlot.

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Mise En Place, from Oakville, shows loads of licorice, Christmas fruitcake, sweet black fruits and a touch of oak in a medium to full-bodied, pure, concentrated style that is in keeping with the epic style of this vintage. Drink it over the next 12-15 years.

A focused, tight and slightly reticent style, with the core of red and black currant flavors having a steeped edge but showing only hints of the additional singed cedar, dried anise and tobacco notes. Light tugs of earth and juniper show through the finish. Will cellar well; for fans of the less showy style. Best from 2020 through 2026. 840 cases made.
