Miner Family Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville8 Ratings
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(From 2006 Vintage) 10% Cabernet Franc. Both better filled and somewhat tougher in style than its partner from the Stagecoach Vineyard, Miner's Oakville bottling scores big points for its very evident depth and its decidedly generous fruit. It firms up at the end and runs up against lots of gruff tannins, yet its abundant, oak-enriched fruit never wavers and is easy to spot all the way to the end. At least three to five years need to pass before this one even begins to fulfill its considerable promise.
