2021 Mise en Place Cabernet Sauvignon

The touchstone of the TEXTBOOK portfolio, restraint over power was Abigail’s goal while crafting Oakville Mise en Place Cabernet Sauvignon. Incredibly rich in color, it showcases aromas of black currants, juicy plums, dark chocolate and baking spices. The palate has beautiful structure and ripe tannins with an excellent, lengthy finish. This wine will age well up to fifteen years.

Our Vision

The concept of “mise en place” comes to life in this wine where every aroma, every flavor, every texture is truly in its place. By using slow, gentle methods like hand harvesting and hand sorting, along with aging in French Oak barrels, we designed this wine to show restraint, a quality that translates into a taste experience that reveals rather than overpowers.
