This Cabernet Sauvignon is a bold, vibrant, fruit forward wine that is a true representation of Oakville, Napa Valley's most coveted AVA. The supple and refined tannins are complimented by rich notes of black currant, cedar, spice, coffee and graphite.
Our vineyard is situated along Highway 29 in the famous Oakville Appellation in the heart of the Napa Valley. We have 10 acres planted exclusively with Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. We've named this beautiful piece of land "Brix Vineyard", after our namesake restaurant "Brix".
For many years guests would come into our restaurant, Brix, and ask if we offered a wine from grapes grown on the property. The answer was complicated. We had for some time grown and sold our grapes to some of the Valley’s most prized labels. But the more often we were asked the question, the more the idea took hold. And in 2004, we decided it was time to create a wine unique to our own vineyard. So we, the Kelleher family, set out to produce our own estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon; with abundant help from some of the most knowledgeable people in the Napa Valley and a uniquely talented winemaker, Craig Becker.
