Tasting Notes

91 points from Wine Enthusiast: "This Cab-based Bordeaux blend has sizable amounts of Merlot and Cab Franc. It’s quite a distinguished wine, classic in the modern Napa sense of softness and ripeness to the point of decadent drinkability. There’s a sweet olive-tapenade edge to the blackberry, cassis and cherry flavors. The finish, believe it or not, suggests blueberry pie, fresh from the oven." (12/31/2007) 91 points from Wine & Spirits Magazine: "This wine's cool edges bring a North Coast conifer forest to mind. Ripe cherry flavors and espresso coffee scents give it sweetness, though the wine is balanced and understated. For duck roasted with cherries." (12/07) 90 points from Robert Parker: "A beautiful wine from this Napa winery, The Oracle is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Malbec. Deep ruby/purple, with spicy aromatics intertwined with some lush blackberry and cassis fruit, opulent on the palate, with full body, silky tannins, and low acidity, this is a beauty that should drink handsomely for at least a decade." (Dec. 2007)
