"This is a very rich 100% Cabernet. It's not particularly Rutherford-esque, if that means anything anymore, but it is a full-bodied, varietally true wine, with deep flavors of blackberries and blackcurrants. The tannins and acids, however, are awkward, suggesting a good six years in the cellar. -S.H." (12/11)

Product Description:

"100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Wild berry, boysenberry, violet on the nose. Ripe cherry, plum, spice, hint of Rutherford dust on the palate." -Winery

WINE:
"Midnight Rambler is named for our winemaker who walks the vineyards the night of the harvest, checking the grapes for perfect ripeness. Low-yielding clay, loam and gravel soils from the famed Rutherford bench north of Oakville, California. Cold soak and extended maceration. Aged in Hungarian, French and American oak barrels (70% new)." -Winery

WINERY:
"Oriel wines are handmade in miniscule quantities, because making great wine is like making great food- to make a little with the very best ingredients is possible, to make a lot is not. Oriel wines are made especially for us, just a few barrels at a time, and express the distinct characters of the vineyards they come from- open a bottle and take a trip." -Winery
