Wine Review: This slightly opaque and dark red colored blend from Napa Valley opens with a fragrant boysenberry bouquet with hints of acai berry and plum. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, balanced and nicely restrained for a 2013. The flavor profile is a gentle mineral infused black cherry with notes of black currant and oak. I also detected a hint of faint plum and dash of black pepper. The finish is rather dry and its moderate tannins show very nice length. This wine would benefit from a little decanting. Pair it with a ribeye steak. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our flagship wine, a full-bodied, single vineyard red blend, grants a nod toward elegance for the 2013 vintage. This Bordeaux-style blend is silky, reserved and supremely balanced. It opens with 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.
