Ashe Vineyards 26-acre, organically farmed estate is situated in Oakville—the appellation of Screaming Eagle, Harlan Estate and Dalle Valle, some of Napa’s most sought after Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyard is planted to the classic Bordeaux varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Sauvignon Blanc. Proprietor Kristine Ashe and her family live on the vineyard property, continuing the legacy of this land as a family home.

An expressive nose of ripe cherry and dried rose petals opens into rich leather, earth, and classic cassis. Velvety tannins, mocha, and ripe, dark fruit weave into a smooth and opulent texture that finishes with notes of vanilla. Complex yet balanced, this pure expression of Oakville Cabernet combines decadence and power with elegance and finesse. Our finest vintage to date.
