Miner 'The Oracle' Red Wine 2014, 375ml, Napa Valley, California

2014 vintage – 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Cabernet Franc, 19% Merlot, 3% Malbec, 3% Petit Verdot. The Oracle is a Bordeaux-style blend inspired by the ancient Greek Oracle, the center of prophecy and wisdom. What was intriguing about the Oracle was that while the prophet imparted knowledge and predicted the future, questions were always answered in the form of a riddle. The fruit for this blend is sourced from Napa Valley’s renowned Stagecoach vineyard, and it changes each year. The wine is aged 21 months in 55% French oak barrels. The Miner Family wine label is based on an ancient Assyrian relief in the image of a Winged Sun God. This symbol represents the brilliant light of the sun, which illuminates the life of mankind while providing energy and warmth to the grape vines.
