Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 92

The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Stagecoach Vineyard (95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, aged 20 months in mostly French oak and some American wood) shows well. It is deep ruby/purple with notes of blackcurrants, licorice and earthy underbrush tones. Drink this medium-bodied wine over the next 7-8 years. The 2005 Proprietary Red The Oracle is a proprietary blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Cabernet Franc, 14% Merlot, 7% Malbec, 6% Malbec, aged similarly to the Stagecoach. This wine seems to have more nuance, complexity, a broader, more savory mouthfeel and longer finish. It is complex, medium to full-bodied, and pure, with loads of cedar wood, forest floor, underbrush, and black and red currant fruit. The color is dense purple and the wine still vigorous and youthful. I would guess it is just entering its plateau of maturity, where it should stay for at least another decade.
