Our most limited release Cabernet Sauvignon, 575 ovx is produced in quantities of less than 300 cases per year. It is devoted to the pure and true expression of a single vineyard from Oakville, 575 ovx, in a single vintage. Grapes for the 575 ovx Cabernet Sauvignon are chosen from our western and southern exposure hillside blocks.The wine is aged in 22 months in medium toast French barriques that are 100 percent new. Most striking is the elegance and balance that such a concentrated and powerful wine can achieve. The nose reveals delicate aromas of rose petal and red berries, which on the palate become lush fruit flavors complemented by a unique exotic minerality. The last sip in your glass is the most treasured as it has only just begun to tell its story. The aging potential is 25 plus years. Production is approx. 200 cases annually on average.
The 575 ovx vineyard is situated in eastern Oakville's hallmark, red and rocky hills. This unique terroir is shared with only a handful of vineyards including Oakville’s most heralded Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards. It is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot and is one of the only south-facing hillsides in Oakville. 575 ovx is just a few minutes from Money Road, but the change in elevation and soil type creates a different essence in the wines. The mineral rich andesite rock is fractured just enough for iron enriched clay loam to have silted into the cracks. The south western facing slope opens 575 ovx up to a cool afternoon bay breeze. A minerality and earthiness found in the wines speaks to the complex nature of the soil and ideal growing conditions. The classic aromatics from 575 ovx are rose petal, lavender and ripe blueberry.
