The Oracle is a Bordeaux-style blend inspired by the ancient Greek Oracle, the center of prophecy and wisdom. The fruit for this wine is sourced from Napa Valley’s renowned Stagecoach Vineyard, and the blend changes each year based on what we believe makes the best wine from what nature has given us.
This harmonious blend reveals aromas of blackberries, coffee and dried herbs that lead into layers of plush dark fruit flavors on the palate. With well-integrated oak and framed by finely grained tannins.
Drink now through 2013. 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Franc and 1% Malbec. 4,660 cases produced.
