Wine Advocate


Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Ranch Vineyard (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) needs a little coaxing to reveal emerging notions of plum preserves, wild blueberries and blackcurrant pastilles plus hints of camphor, tree bark, truffles and licorice. The full-bodied palate is concentrated and packed with black and blue fruit layers, with finely grained tannins to support and a lively backbone, finishing long with mineral sparks.
