The Art on The Label Does Justice to The Wine Within


Aperture Oliver Ranch Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Winemaker Jesse Katz isn’t just one of the promising young winemakers coming out of California – his dad Andy is also a noted photograph­er, making for their label Aperture’s distinctiv­e wine labels. This tree-lined path image was chosen for its brooding quality, highlighti­ng Oliver Ranch’s single vineyard character. The Alexander Valley 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot blend is aged 22 months in 50% new oak, and is unfined, unfiltered and unacidifed. The flavours are pure and unforgetta­ble, featuring rich black cherry laced with crunchy tannins, leading to a generous finish. Price on enquiry from KAL Wine Source Asia


• Fourth consecutiv­e years of drought in Sonoma County saw a smaller but high quality vintage.

• A warm summer accelerate­d maturity and picking, resulting in one of the earliest harvests on record.

• Like other grapes, there were smaller berries for Cabernet Sauvignon, which gave it greater concentrat­ion and ripeness in balance with tannins and colour.
