Keplinger Oakville Ranch Vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 (750ml)
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Ranch Vineyard is magical stuff and checks in near the top of my scale. A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot, all from a great site in Oakville, it boasts full-bodied power and richness as well as complex notes of black and blue fruits, toasted spices, dried tobacco, and cedar pencil-like nuances. It’s a powerful wine that also has elegance as well as class. Drink this brilliant wine any time over the coming 2-3 decades.
