Oakville Ranch

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1997

Have to open an old one for every new one.
Used the Durand just in case, didn’t need it, cork was perfect for a 1997.
Inexpensive rustic Cabernet,
Better on day 2

Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

The 2015 ‘Oakville’ Cabernet Sauvignon is showing marvelously at its early stage in development. Needing a one hour decant to fully arouse, the wine slowly reveals ripe dark currants with tar and anise aromatics that take shape in the glass. The palate shows a excellent power and acidity with intense dark fruits, and shades of creme de cassis and Turkish coffee. Enjoyable now in its youth, this will continue to evolve over the next fifteen years. Drink 2019-2033 — 7 days ago

Very delicate winemaking style with Oakville fruit. Really nice aromatics; blackberry compote, spiced blackberry jam, and some charcoal. Crushed red and black berries, crushed rocks and dried savory herbs. — 16 days ago

BDX Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2012

Had this 2 years ago. Special wine not produced every year, BDX presents a different expression of Oakville, Bordeaux blend of 91% Cab Sauv, 8% Cab Franc & 1% Petit Verdot. The wine sat on French oak (55% new) for 28 months. Aromas of rich berry fruit with sweet oak, spice & cedar notes. On the palate blackberry & sweet cherry flavor with cacao & oak spice, great balance & structure. Smooth tannins, great mouthfeel, balanced acidity on a long finish ending with a slight tangy pepper character. Great value! — 4 days ago

Oakford Vineyards

Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 1996

A fun wine to accompany the Futo tasting, from the property that eventually became the core of Futo’s Oakville vineyard. Made by Heidi Barrett. This exceeded my expectations and still had lovely layers of fresh fruit. It shows what excellent terroir can accomplish irrespective of winemaker. — 6 days ago

Spoto Wines

Cabernet Franc 2006

@Delectable Wine this is Spoto Cab Franc (back when he used to bottle a Single variety CF)... Opened up to enjoy our 15th a bit early at Folly Beach SC.... At 13 years of age, I still think this one wasn't really ready for over an hour after cork pop. Nose and front palate of black cherry, white and pink flowers, rhubarb. Full bodied. Open for business. Middle showed a bit of mint and some dark chocolate cacao. Finishes mostly with black cherry and a hint of cola and spice. Delicious. Ready to go with a tiny bit of coaxing. I don't know if this is really going to get any better so IMO now's the time to drink up. — 9 days ago

Futo

Oakville Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2015

Tasting of 2005, 2009, 2010, 2013, 2014, and 2015 Futo. All were really delicious. My favorites were probably the 2010 and 2013. The Cab Franc really shows through on the later vintages. Really lovely wines with gorgeous purity of fruit. @Jason wish you were here! — 6 days ago
