2016 HILARY GOLDSCHMIDT “CHARMING CREEK” OAKVILLE CABERNET SAUVIGNON
How much would you expect to pay for a bottle of Oakville Cabernet from a vineyard bordering Opus One? I’m sure you know that Oakville is Napa Valley’s crown-jewel AVA and it’s widely considered the epicenter of Grand Cru quality Cabernet Sauvignon. But this particular Oakville Cabernet comes from a secret vineyard that borders OPUS ONE on the North Side… Sounds expensive right? Fortunately for us, this one was created by Nick Goldschmidt whom many of you recognize from his Crazy Creek Cabernet which is arguably the best value in California Cabernet. The 2016 Hilary Goldschmidt Charming Creek Cabernet is a classic representation of Oakville Cabernet with plenty of blackberry, plush tannins, depth and charisma. The only thing missing is the high price… At $34.99/btl, you’ll definitely want a case.
Nick Goldschmidt’s 2016 Charming Creek is a wine with enormous upside potential. It’s made obvious by the wine’s dense and extracted core, which unfurls a flurry of mountain berries, crushed rock, spice box and subtle tobacco. With little coaxing in the glass the wine begins to impersonate some of Oakville’s giants, with remarkable detail, poise and extraction. It’s easy to forget that you only paid $35/btl, when this wine starts showing off… Just don’t wait too long, because values this great are always in high demand.

Tasting Notes: "Inky black intensity with an opulence and richness carrying a complex center core of fruits that include black mountain berries, red raspberry, and minerals. The palate further unfolds with crushed dewberries, kirsch, and ripe black cherry and tobacco flavors. The perfect balance of both red and black fruits perfectly defines the signature style that makes Oakville so famous."
