Oakville Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
Wine EnthusiastThis lovely wine from the producer's Pelissa Vineyard is perfumed in roses, while offering a soft, velvety texture that's restrained in terms of tannin and oak. Clove, graphite and white pepper develop in the glass, adding to the wine's classical nature.
Wine SpectatorCharming, offering an elegant array of supple-textured licorice, sage and dusty red and dark berry notes. Most impressive on the long, tapered finish, which lets the flavors glide along on the aftertaste.
Wine AdvocateOpaque ruby/purple, this wine offers up sweet cassis fruit intermixed with licorice and camphor, as well as Christmas fruitcake. The wine hits the palate with a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, attractive texture and good purity and length. Drink it over the next 12-15 years.
