We are celebrating Oakstone's 20th Anniversary this year! We thought the best way to mark this momentous occasion in the life of Oakstone Winery was with a very special wine, so we created a Limited Edition Dry Farmed Reserve Meritage from our flagship Estate DeCascabel Vineyard, planted in 1981. Only one precious barrel of the Dry Farmed Cabernet Sauvignon was gleaned from this vintage and paired with Cabernet Franc, to produce an elegant wine. Redolent with rich berry nuances, lush notes of cassis and cola with a lingering velvety finish, this beautifully balanced wine was aged in French Oak 22 months. This is a collector's edition, with only 50 cases produced, and is contained in a beautiful fluted glass bottle with a special silk screened label commemorating our 20th Anniversary. Available at $38 per bottle, for Wine Club Members only, limit 6.
Last January, we offered futures on six great wines from Oakstone Winery and Obscurity Cellars, and all those futures will be available for pickup at our Father's Day Celebration June 17 & 18 from 11-5 in our Cellar.
Even if you didn't purchase these wonderful wines as futures, this will be a one-time opportunity to sample and take home some as yet unreleased Oakstone and Obscurity wines, including Obscurity Cellars' 2015 Petit Verdot, "Old Man Murrill" Zinfandel, Alicante Bouschet, Malbec and Old-Vine Carignane, and Oakstone Winery's Reserve Petite Sirah. These wines will be available just this weekend, and will not appear again until their formal release dates.
Our fabulous Naylor Vineyard Barbera, awarded a Gold Medal at the Orange County Fair Commercial Wine Competition, will be released this weekend as well, and case & Club discounts apply to all wine purchases.
The always wonderful Diane Wilkinson Catering will have pulled pork sliders and gourmet snacks to pair with these special wines. Everyone is invited, there is no charge to attend, AND it's cool in the cellar! Bring your friends and family and share the holiday weekend with us!
