From tasting the berries to careful sorting and prolonged aging in new French oak barrels, each stage of vinification is meticulous at the Opus One vineyard. Their wine is a blend dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon supplemented by Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec. After 18 months, the wine is bottled and kept for an additional 15 months until it is released on October 1 of each year.

Caymus Vineyards produces two Cabernet Sauvignon – a “Napa Valley” and a “Special Selection”. Both Cabernet bottlings have aromas and flavors that can only be achieved through ‘hanging time’ – meaning the fruit clings to the vine for an unusually long time to develop suppleness, increase color and ‘ the suspension time ”ripens the tannins in the grapes. Caymus Cabernets offer a wide range of aromas and flavors, including cocoa, black currant and vanilla.

Cakebread operates several wineries. One of the fundamental business philosophies is environmental responsibility. At Cakebread Cellars, they use green practices that range from sustainable, organic farming and diligent water / energy conservation to extensive recycling operations (almost 90% of waste generated by vineyards) . We are proud to have been one of the early industry leaders in these endeavors. In fact, Cakebread Cellars was only the second California winery to achieve Napa Green certification. Cakebread offers chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, rosé, pinot noir, red blends and more.

Silver Oak was born from a handshake between two friends with a daring vision: to focus on one grape, Cabernet Sauvignon, aged exclusively in American oak barrels and cellar-worthy for decades to come. Silver Oak operates over 400 acres of vineyards in Napa Valley and Alexander Valley with a cutting edge approach to agriculture and viticulture, and the smoothest possible impact on natural resources and the environment.
