2015 HEROLD OAKVILLE CABERNET
Introducing Oakville Ranch Vineyard
Effusive and ethereal aromatics explode from the glass! Blackberry liqueur, crème de cassis, pomegranate, espresso bean, strawberry syrup and crushed granite. Underlying notes of roasted almonds, suede, sweet tobacco, fresh wildflowers and candied orange peel add complexity and depth to this heady wine. The palate is laden with a cascade of black and purple fruit flavors with hints of truffles and minerals. The wine drinks effortlessly, the tannins are firm yet supple and the finish goes on and on!

This is big, bold, rich and plush, with a dense, commanding core of juicy dark berry, cedary oak, sage and tobacco notes, but it’s the purity of the fruit that stays with you through the finish. Drink now through 2030. (Wine Spectator Insider, July 11, 2018)
Antonio Galloni - 97 points
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon White Label, from Oakville Ranch, is fabulous. Super-ripe black cherry, blueberry jam, mint, crème de cassis, lavender and spice infuse this dramatic, flamboyant Cabernet Sauvignon. Silky tannins and layers of racy, voluptuous fruit add to the wine's intense, full-bodied personality. (January 2018)
