About

93

"Concentrated aromas of blackberry jam, game, charred wood and cocoa show on the dynamic nose of this blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 9% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 4% Malbec. The palate is hearty and meaty, offering flavors of blackberry syrup, woody incense and sandalwood, along with roasted beef. -MK"

92 Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media

"Opaque ruby. Expressive cassis and blackberry aromas are complicated by roasted coffee, candied rose and pipe tobacco nuances. Broad and fleshy in the mouth, offering sweet red and dark berry liqueur flavors that slowly firm up and turn livelier on the back half. Shows a deft blend of power and delicacy and finishes on a youthfully tannic note, with resonating red fruit and floral notes and a subtle mineral quality."

Product Description:

"Each year, we craft the limited-edition Oyster Ridge cuvée to exemplify our finest winemaking efforts. The name Oyster Ridge honors an outcropping that always astonishes visitors to our estate Margarita Vineyard. Here, large white oyster fossils are literally spilling out of the ground, fostering the type of calcium-rich soil that is coveted by winemakers worldwide. The 2016 vintage is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (51%), Merlot (32%), Petit Verdot (9%), Cabernet Franc (4%) and Malbec (4%), all from meticulously farmed vineyard blocks cultivated for the Oyster Ridge program." - Winery
