The 2016 Patria Oakville Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon is an absolutely sensational wine. It instantly begins to impress as it opens to alluring aromatics of ripe black currants and blueberries which come together with spices, graphite, dried herbs and spring florals that all develop beautifully in the glass. On the palate this possesses a full body, with a gorgeous voluptuous texture, supported by nicely integrated, well-polished tannins. It shows wonderful overall balance, structure and concentration through the long supple finish. Delicious now, and should continue to drink well for more than a decade. The 2016 releases from Patria have been nothing short of utterly brilliant and the Oakville Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon is certainly that should not be missed.
