The Oracle is a Bordeaux-style blend inspired by the ancient Greek Oracle, the center of prophecy and wisdom. This is an elegant, full-bodied wine with layers cocoa, spicy oak and lush blackberry that promises to drink handsomely for at least a decade.

Final blend: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Cabernet Franc, 17% Merlot, 5% Malbec and 5% Petit Verdot.

  • 93 points, Wine & Spirits (April 2010): “…a cool savory red with fine tannin ripeness…has the concentration and stature to benefit from ten years in the cellar.”
  • 93 points, Connoisseurs' Guide (Apr.11): "A big and very rich opus, Miner's Oracle makes no apologies for its ripeness or oak, but the terrific, very well-extracted dark fruit that runs its length is what earns it a place among highly recommended wines.
  • Gold Medal (for Premium Bordeaux Blend), San Francisco Wine Competition

With its structure, it falls into that 10 year aging category.
