A very sentimental vintage for us, the 2021 brings a return to our original name. Longtime customers will remember our first vintages of this wine was named III Michaels, a nod to the founders' middle names. A few years and two namesake sons later, the 2021 proudly returns as IV Michaels.
Opening with beautiful notes of violets and cassis, the 2021 Oakville Cabernet is quick to remind you that you have come to the right place. The deeply perfumed nose welcomes palate notes of blackberry liqueur, fresh pencil shavings and chocolate covered blueberries. Plush and weighty, this wine coats the palate with supple, velvety tannins and a bright acid structure that is both balanced and fresh with tremendous ageablity.
We will monitor temperatures and only ship this wine when it is safe to do so.
