The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Ranch might be the best Napa Valley Cabernet out there under $100. Based on 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, and the rest Cabernet Franc, it offers a full-bodied, round, sexy style that can be difficult to find in a vintage like 2017. Deep purple-hued, with lots of blue fruits, candied orange, and violet notes, it builds beautifully on the palate, showing ripe, polished tannins, no hard edges, and a balanced, seamless mouthfeel. Count me impressed with this Cabernet, which comes close to rivaling the 2016.
A big, rich red with lots of crushed berries and chocolate. Blueberry undertones. Transparent. Full-bodied, powerful and intense. Plus loads of fruit. Yet, there’s an austere form to it.
This vineyard sits between Dalla Valle and Ovid. A blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc, the 2017 Oakville Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet-purple colored and features notions of Morello cherries, wild blueberries and cassis with touches of red currant jelly, rose hip tea, dusty soil and bouquet garni. Medium-bodied, the palate is refreshing and elegantly styled, with soft, approachable tannins and a perfumed finish. (LPB)
The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Ranch is powerful and also tightly wound, with the combination of fruit richness and bright acids that is such a signature of this Oakville site. Readers will have to give the 2017 at least a few years in bottle, as it is especially closed right now. Sweet red cherry fruit, mint, spice, licorice and rose petal give the wine striking brightness, but the best is yet to come. Today, the 2017 is tightly coiled and more nervous than it was from barrel, which is probably a good thing for its medium- and longer-term prospects. (AG) 94+
