G Major 7 Study Cabernet Sauvignon is blended from selected fruit off the 575 ovx vineyard and is named after a classic jazz guitar chord. Like its namesake, it is composed of four of the five classic Bordeaux varietals, Cabernet Sauvignon 85%, Cabernet Franc 12% , Petite Verdot 8% and Merlot 1%. The grapes are derive from four separate vineyard blocks in Eastern Oakville's red rocks. The wine is aged for 22 months in medium toast French barriques from which 90 percent were new. Production is approx. 900 cases annually.
G Major 7 is highly nuanced and provides a profound sense of elegance and complexity, changing with every swirl and sip. The nose reflects subtle floral notes, which develop into deep, crushed berry and earth flavors on the palate. Its tannins are refined and seamlessly integrated. The aging potential is 25 plus years.
Gargiulo Vineyards is a small family-owned winery located in the Oakville sub-region of California’s Napa Valley. The family dedicates themselves to smaller case productions of premium wines from their two best vineyards, Money Road Ranch and the 575 OVX, both located in Oakville. Opened since January 2007, the tasting room sits on a small knoll overlooking the vineyard for some of California’s most expensive wine, Screaming Eagle. Founded by longtime farmer Jeff Gargiulo, Gargiulo Vineyards is a showcase of Napa-style Bordeaux wines that are elegant with some fruit characteristics. Today, Jeff works with his wife, daughter, and son in law to continue to strive to make the most pure expressions of Oakville wines.
