– Dave Dobson, Winemaker
Dave Dobson believes Mother Nature creates wine; winemakers simply guide the creation to bottle. With a passion for big red blends, Dave wanted to do more than blend them in the cellar. Fortune smiled on him when he discovered a single vineyard where all three desired varietals grew together. The plan was already laid out before him. He fermented them together and The Ox emerged: a completely unique and unparalleled Napa Valley Red Blend. Petite Sirah, Syrah and Merlot are hand-harvested from a single vineyard and fermented as one, producing a truly integrated wine.
