GARGIULO VINEYARDS “Money Road Ranch” Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
(Oakville, Napa Valley, CA) $110
Jeff Gargiulo’s background in growing things (he was CEO of both Sunkist and one of the largest tomato and vegetable companies in the U.S.), was the perfect springboard for his becoming a vintner and founding Gargiulo Vineyards in 1998. The Money Road vineyard (on a small lane called Money Road) is right in the heart of the Oakville appellation. The wines always have a beautiful dark savory aspect to them, and the 2017, with its plush core of fruit, is no exception.
