Inaugural Premiere Napa Valley offering
100% estate Oak Knoll District Cabernet Sauvignon
Dense and bold but with beautiful finesse
Crafted by the illustrious Kirk Venge
This beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon is our Eleven Eleven inaugural Premiere offering. Sourced 100% from our Estate Laki's Vineyard in the heart of the Oak Knoll appellation, there is a delightful cherry drop in the heart of the wine. Like the jammy fruit center of a jelly doughnut, a very dense, bold and velvety red fruit flavor emerges. Oak is rich and the mouthfeel is lavish. Enjoy!

Coming from a long line of winemakers - dating back to my great grandfather, Knud, grandfather Per and father, Nils - you could say that farming and wine making is in my blood. It was with great excitement that I came across Eleven Eleven, where I can best utilize my skills and creativity. In fact, I had coveted the property and vineyards that Ellie, Carol and Aurelien were savvy enough to secure, and it was with enthusiasm that I agreed to cultivate their fruit. My winemaking focus has always been 'vineyard first,' and the Eleven Eleven vineyards are prime real estate for compelling winemaking.
