Miner The Oracle 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
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.
