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.
Those lucky people that took advantage of purchasing these two beautiful wines as Futures this past May are about to be rewarded for their patience! The Cabernet Sauvignon is as opulent as ever with the rich lush palate of cola and cassis that this vineyard is known for, along with the classic Bordeaux finish every Cabernet lover craves.
Our fabulous Dry Farmed Zinfandel is once again, a favorite of the tasting room staff! Blackberry and plum are evident on the palate, and followed by a lingering, velvety finish.
We will have these wines available for everyone to taste and purchase this weekend only, then they will be put away until their formal release dates, so be sure to taste and grab some while you can!

2015 Murrill Vineyard
1916 Old Vines Carignane $27.00
Another "obscure" unusually rich, concentrated, and complex wine from a grape often relegated to blending, also from vines planted in 1916. When the vines approach the century mark, the wine develops it's own personality and characteristics and stands beautifully on its own. Awarded a Gold Medal at El Dorado County Fair, Silver at Orange County Fair
