Home to some of the most sought-after Cabernet Sauvignon grapes in America, Napa Valley’s Oakville district stretches across the center of Napa's valley floor and foothills between the Vaca and Mayacamas Mountains. This is where Addax, a high-end boutique wine project owned by Josh Peeples, stake their claim. The wines are crafted by ace-winemaker extraordinaire Russell Bevan – one of the most esteemed winemakers in the US today.
This 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon is a pure expression of the Tench Vineyard and Russell's winemaking philosophy. A deep and dark powerhouse full of the sweetest, most perfectly picked berries. The complexity of supple glove leather and fresh forest petrichor are complemented by sweet vanilla bean and graphite. This hedonistic beauty is packed with fruit, has a layered, full-bodied, rounded texture, beautiful mid-palate depth, and a perfect finish. It’s an extraordinary wine that will evolve for decades.

The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Tench Vineyard is deep garnet-purple in color, exploding with crème de cassis, blackberry pie and fruitcake notes, plus hints of Chinese five spice and fragrant earth. Full-bodied, rich and plush in the mouth, the generous, spicy black fruits fan out long and layered on the finish.
96 Points Jeb Dunnuck
Coming from a great vineyard in Oakville, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Tench Vineyard boasts a dense purple hue as well as a blockbuster bouquet of blueberries, plums, graphite, toasted spices, and a marine, shrimp broth, iron-like character that’s one of the hallmarks of the site. Full-bodied and structured on the palate, it’s going to deliver the goods over the coming 15+ years.
Expertly Crafted and Positively Enjoyable!
