Our flagship wine, a full-bodied, single vineyard red blend, grants a nod
toward elegance for the 2012 vintage. This Bordeaux-style blend is silky,
reserved and supremely balanced.
Lush aromatics of raspberry and dark cherry with a hint of eucalyptus,
The Oracle is decadent, but with finesse. Earthiness and layers of dried
flowers and cocoa integrate harmoniously into a finely balanced marriage
between tannin and acid, providing the structure that ensures, like
all impeccable beauties, this wine is sure to age gracefully.
Sitting above the fog line, Stagecoach Vineyard, located in the eastern
hills of Napa Valley, enjoyed the advantage of long sunlight hours
in 2012. Additionally, the afternoon winds that reached the higher
elevations kept berries dry after late summer rains. The result: focused
fruit that is reflected in the impeccably refined mountain-side wines.
