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

Rich aromas of black cherry, black plum, and roasted fig are complemented by elegant botanical layers of violet, anise, and clove. On the palate, the dark ripe fruit flavors are balanced with savory notes of mushroom, black olive and bay leaf. Framed by firm tannins and bright acidity, the finish is luscious and long.

BLEND:
48% Petit Verdot
36% Cabernet Sauvignon
16% Merlot

Food Affinities

Winery Chef Chris Kennedy says “this wine begs to be enjoyed with duck!” Incorporate charred or cooked fig for a perfect pairing. Another fantastic option is stewed tomato with your favorite pasta or rice.
