94 Points - limited
Limited new release of a small-production gem of a Cabernet.
94 Points Robert Parker: "The 2014 Oakville Ranch Avoyelles is an intriguing blend of 56% Cabernet Franc, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot. I thought this was an outrageously delicious, complex wine with notes of incense, camphor, blueberry liqueur, blackcurrants, licorice and a touch of new oak in the background. It is deep, full-bodied, velvety textured and voluptuous with superb density and relatively pure, deep blue and black fruits. This full-bodied wine will offer delicious drinking over the next 12-15+ years...Oakville Ranch sits on the red Aiken soils not far from the Dalla Valle and Ovid estates, the latter being essentially on Pritchard Hill."
