Since the inaugural Skipstone vintage of 2005, our annual approach with Oliver's Blend is to create a blend of Cabernet Sauvignons from up to 20 individual small lots. Each lot has a unique profile (based on soil type, exposure and clonal selection) and blended they create a foundation. This Cabernet Sauvignon is then embellished with small amounts of our other blending varietals to best showcase the vintage. With so many pockets of soil differentiation and exposures, Oliver's Blend is a symphonic compilation of aroma and flavor. This, coupled with clonal diversity of multiple Cabernet clones throughout our hillside plantings, creates an exceptionally complex wine. Year after year, this is a wine of profound power and elegance. Oliver's Blend is aged for two years in barrel and another year in bottle prior to our release. This highly-structured Cabernet Sauvignon is an excellent candidate for further cellaring, with potential to age for decades.

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Oliver's Blend is very deep garnet-purple colored with an earthy, meaty, gamey, savory nose with aromas of crème de cassis and plum preserves with sautéed herbs, earth, damp soil and truffles notes. Medium to full-bodied with firm, grainy tannins, it has good concentration and depth, finishing long and earthy. 698 cases produced.
