Shorthand for Oak Knoll District, O.K.D. is our annual experiment in blending. Reflecting the unique personality of each vintage, this wine gives us the freedom to play and see how different varieties interact over time. Three refers to the three varieties in this year’s blend.

The Vintage

Record-breaking winter rains filled our reservoirs and recharged the soil. Spring and early summer were warm, leading to very strong growth in the vines. The rest of the summer was more typical with warm days and cool nights, providing perfect conditions for the developing grapes. Our yields for the season were slightly lower than average and the resulting wines are classic—with complex flavors and our signature brightness on the palate.

The Wine

With this vintage, Petit Verdot is the star, offering dark fruit flavors and strong tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon adds complexity and more structure while Cabernet Franc brings the peppery spice notes.

Food Affinities

Delicious with duck, grilled chicken, sausage, tomato-based pastas and paella.
