With the 2008 vintage, the collaboration between YOSHIKI and his winemaking partner, Rob Mondavi Jr., began. In 2018, to celebrate their tenth anniversary together, they released the limited Y by YOSHIKI Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Napa Valley 2016, which is sourced exclusively from the world-renowned cabernet sauvignon growing region in the Napa Valley called “Oakville”—also home of legendary wineries such as Screaming Eagle, Harlan and Opus One, just to name a few.
This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, which YOSHIKI proudly presented as “a masterpiece”, gained reputation and demands for the next vintage came pouring in. Based on this success, YOSHIKI is proud to announce the launch the Fourth vintage of the Oakville series, Y by YOSHIKI Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Napa Valley 2019.
At the heart of Napa Valley is Oakville which is known for growing the finest wines in the world. Oakville has the ideal balance of warm days and cool nights with well drained alluvial soils providing exceptional well balanced and smooth wines. The Y by YOSHIKI aromatics offer freshly crushed Cacao nibs, Kiowa Blackberry, elderberry, minerals and earthy suede. The body of the wine is noted for the smooth texture and wonderful expression of dark fruits with savory layers with a long voluminous finish. This is a pure single vineyard 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged exclusively in bespoke hand crafted French Oak barrels.
