"Brilliant, bright fruit aromas and
flavors animate this lively, acid-driven wine as it gushes in tones of raspberry,
blackberry and cranberry wrapped in light yet firm tannins. Balance like this should
set it up for mid-term aging, drinking beautifully through at least 2025. —J.G."

All About the Wine and Kate
Born out of love of coastal wine, Blue Oasis Wines exemplifies the true characteristics of grapes grown in premier California coastal appellations.
Kate Jones, the creator of Blue Oasis Wines, chose the name because the ocean is her (as well as many others) "Oasis." The "Blue" also comes from the regions which her grapes grow. The first grapes were from the Monterey Bay, also known as the "Blue Canyon," which is deeper and wider than the Grand Canyon. The current vintage was produced by grapes from Mendocino County, Anderson Valley (designated by Day Ranch and Lula Vineyards respectively). The proximity to the ocean yields optimal growing conditions for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
Kate grew up on a horse, cattle, and hay farm on the east coast which started her interest in wine. A graduate of the University of Delaware, Kate's success is built upon a diverse career that has seen her work in a plethora of fields from a financial analyst for NASA, to a corporate recruiter, to a licensed Realtor who specializes in the sale of vineyards, wineries and luxury estates in the Napa Valley region and simultaneously a winemaker and proprietor of Blue Oasis Wines. She lived on Long Island for three years and that's where her love for grapes really blossomed. From then on she has been studying wine and moved to the Napa Valley to pursue her dream. Blue Oasis label came to fruition Kate stating “the ocean has always been my place to go to relax and clear my mind. When I have a hard time sleeping I imagine the waves crashing and take a breath in when the wave is rising and then I take a deep breath out when I imagine it receding. I then try to clear my mind as the sand clears. It's also a way to learn to let go of things.”
We hope you find your Oasis with every sip!
