What we do
Oakville, Napa Cabernet
Our team pays meticulous attention to detail, making sure that every decision encourages the personality of MelMar Wines Signature Edition Cabernet to come through. Then our winemaker Eric Hanson and Mark Powers blends from this diverse palette of terroir expression to come up with a classic Oakville, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon with hallmark bright, ripe fruit and incredibly smooth finish.
MelMar Wines is located in the heart of Napa Valley, the Oakville District has given way to some of the most accomplished and acknowledged Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards in the world. The climate in Oakville is unique to other Napa Valley AVAs due to its midvalley positioning; it is southern enough to attract morning fog from the San Pablo Bay, yet far north enough to bask in the warm afternoon sunlight. The Vineyard site is located on Oakville Cross Road, with Plumpjack to its right and Groth Reserve blocks to its left. The Vineyard was planted in 2007 and is cropped to about 3 tons per acre, which translates to low-yielding/high concentration berries.
