Gargiulo Vineyards Oakville
Small boutique winery producing Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from the Money Ranch Vineyard, as well as a red blend Aprile Super Oakville. This is dominated by Sangiovese with a little Cabernet Sauvignon to add grip. The wine is in a light, elegant style but offers impressive intensity at this price level. It is supple and approachable and will drink well with a couple of years’ ageing. Cabernet Sauvignon is fuller, more concentrated, with dark, spicy, berry fruit and supple approachable tannins. Aged in close to 80% new French oak, it lacks the elegance and intensity of the Aprile. A smaller volume 575 OVX Cabernet Sauvignon is also made as well as a Cabernet Sauvignon based blend G major 7.
