Miner ‘The Oracle’ Red Wine 2016, 375ml, Napa Valley, California

“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. Appellation: 100% Napa Valley. Vineyards: Stagecoach, Rutherford, Chiles Valley & Oakville Vineyards. Blend 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc, 7% Merlot. Fermentation: 22 months in 60% new French oak. Vintage notes: During the growing season, abundant winter rains refreshed groundwater supplies and led to a cool and mild spring. The summer brought warm temperatures allowing for optimal ripening. When the wine country wildfires began on October 8th, the majority of our grape tonnage had already been harvested. Fruit brought in after the fires was deemed unusable from smoke taint, resulting in lower than average volume. This vintage is opulent, velvety, concentrated and possesses layers and depth. It is a vintage we will never forget.” – Winery
