Patria 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Ranch

Aromatically even more intoxicating than previous vintages, bolstered by the increase of Cabernet Franc to 15%. Primary notes of black cherry, dark chocolate, raspberry, cedar box, Herbes de Provence, and rose petals intermingle with flavors of blackberry, cocoa powder, soy and black olive. The finish is rich and full bodied with finely polished tannins, a hallmark of this vintage. It's hard not to go back or another glass. Esteemed wine critic Jeb Dunnuck opined the 2017 Oakville Ranch the best Napa Valley Cabernet under $100, and the 2018 is even better. Cépage: 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot.

Jeb Dunnuck - 97 Points
"Moving to the 2018s from barrel, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Ranch is another incredibly pure, vivid, elegant wine from Biagi that has a classic Cabernet Sauvignon nose of blue fruits, damp earth, and spring flowers. The blend at the moment is 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, and the balance Petit Verdot, and itís aging in 75% new French oak. It shows the more medium to full-bodied, seamless style of the vintage and should shine with just short-term cellaring."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 96 Points
"This 2018 Oakville Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon is a barrel sample blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc and 7% Petit Verdot. Medium garnet-purple colored, it leaps from the glass with vibrant red and black cherries, red currant jelly and cassis scents with hints of red roses, pencil shavings and fallen leaves plus a waft of lavender. Medium-bodied, elegantly played and with fantastic quiet intensity, the palate sings of perfumed red and black fruit with beautifully ripe, fine-grained tannins and bold freshness, finishing with epic length."

James Suckling - 94 Points
"A rich, layered red with lots of crushed berries and cherries. Opulent and lush, in Napa style. Needs time for the intense tannins to soften. Cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot. Better after 2021."
