"The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Ranch might be the best Napa Valley Cabernet out there under $100. Based on 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, and the rest Cabernet Franc, it offers a full-bodied, round, sexy style that can be difficult to find in a vintage like 2017. Deep purple-hued, with lots of blue fruits, candied orange, and violet notes, it builds beautifully on the palate, showing ripe, polished tannins, no hard edges, and a balanced, seamless mouthfeel. Count me impressed with this Cabernet, which comes close to rivaling the 2016. Drink bottles any time over the coming 15-20 years."
"Forward and ready to drink, vibrant aromas of blackberry pie, soy, iron filings and black currant are followed on the palate with lush flavors of cocoa powder, dark chocolate and hints of hoisin. Delicious and giving now, but will age easily for the next 5-7 years, it marries the best qualities of the 2015 and 2013 vintages." - Winery
