2021 APERTURE OLIVER RANCH CABERNET SAUVIGNON


Bottle of Aperture 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon

This single-vineyard, 100% cabernet comes from Oliver Ranch, in Alexander Valley. Planted in 1989 by the viticulture legend, Phil Freese who leads the Aperture viticulture practices today, this 3.6 acre site is an exquisite example of precise vineyard planning and how obsessive attention to detail can shape the resulting wine.
Available in 750ml and 1.5L magnum formats


“The 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Oliver Ranch was matured for 22 months in 80% new French oak. It takes some patience on the nose as it unfurls its aromas of blackcurrant, blueberry, cast iron, lilac, fennel and gingerbread spices. Its classy oak tones are nestled into a concentrated core of detailed fruit on the palate, and it has a weightless frame of velvety tannins. It’s noticeably energetic with bright acidity and has a very long, latent finish. In place of its typical density, this 2021 vintage of Oliver Ranch offers tremendous purity and elegance. 440 cases were made, and it will be long lived in the cellar.
97+ pts – Erin Brooks, Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate
