2007 Miner Family The Oracle

Wine Description

(From 2008 Vintage) The Oracle is an exceptionally balanced, full-bodied red blend made from grapes grown at Stagecoach Vineyard in the eastern hills of Napa Valley. In Greek mythology, the oracle was a source of inspiration and revelation. We hope that you will find the answers to life’s most compelling questions while enjoying The Oracle with friends and family.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2006 Vintage) Our flagship wine, inspired by the ancient Greek Oracle, reveals flavors of spicy plum, ripe blackberry with hints of cedar backed by requisite acidity and supple, generous tannins. Made using fruit sourced from the renowned Stagecoach Vineyard, this Bordeaux style blend will drink well through 2014. The cooler 2005 vintage stands out for its ideal ripening conditions that allowed for incredible complexity, color and nuance.

    (From 2004 Vintage) 52% Cabernet Sauvignon; 26% Merlot; 21% Cabernet Franc; 1% Malbec. Clean and a bit mild given its ripeness and complex blend of varieties, this wine is full on the palate and sports a bit of curranty fruit along with hints of toasted herbs and chocolate. Its finishing tannins are firm but not aggressive or abrasive, and the wine is likely to drink well for the next several years alongside beef or lamb roasts.
