The 2016 Sojourn ‘Oakville Ranch’ Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville is sourced from the Oakville Ranch vineyard which is 1400 feet above the valley floor. With optimal growing conditions, the grapes used to make this wine are excellent. Bold and powerful, this Cab covers all the bases. Blackberry, mocha and spice open on the nose. Fruit flavors follow on the palate, with solid tannin and firm acid framing the wine to a lengthy finish.
Looking first at the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville, it’s a smoking introduction to the estate and reveals a deep purple hue as well as tons of mulled blackcurrant fruits interwoven with cedary herbs, dark chocolate, and hints of tobacco. This is a beautiful, full-bodied effort that has sweet tannins, a rounded, sexy mouthfeel, and a great finish. It’s a winner to drink anytime over the coming 10-15 years. It competes with wines three times the price.
