Miner The Oracle 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Our flagship wine, a full-bodied, single vineyard red blend, grants a nod toward elegance. This Bordeaux-style blend is silky, reserved and supremely balanced. Lush aromatics of raspberry and dark cherry with a hint of eucalyptus, The Oracle is decadent, but with finesse. Earthiness and layers of dried flowers and cocoa integrate harmoniously into a finely balanced marriage between tannin and acid, providing the structure that ensures, like all impeccable beauties, this wine is sure to age gracefully.
The flagship 2016 Red Blend The Oracle is a blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Cabernet Franc, 17% Merlot, and the balance Malbec and Petit Verdot. It's slightly deeper colored than the Oakville Cabernet and gives up plenty of red and black fruits, spicy oak, tobacco, and graphite. A big step up on the richness scale, it still has beautiful purity and elegance as well as fine tannins, terrific balance, and a great finish. Drink it any time over the coming two decades.
