From the Winery

“The 2019 Oakcross Proprietary Red presents itself with an intense, dark ruby color. It opens with scents of red plum, perfume and aromatic floral notes of violet, along with hints of pomegranate, persimmon and vanilla cream. The mouthfeel is plush, soft and balanced, with perfectly resolved tannins and flavors of tart plum skin and rich, dark berries. Delicious with a grilled steak, this wine is also superb with barbecue or slow- cooked heirloom beans with a dash of bacon. Lamb kofta also makes for a winning pairing.”

94 Points Wine Spectator

“A dynamic blend, combining deep structure with finesse and polish, this features black cherry and cassis flavors laced with toasty spice, red licorice and a hint of dusty herbs as it builds tension toward refined tannins. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2030. 1,150 cases made.”

93 Points James Suckling

“Black fruit, chocolate, cedar and dried spices on the nose. Medium-to full-bodied with fine tannins and fresh acidity. Balanced, with delicious chocolate-cherry character and a chalky texture. A blend of 49% merlot, 47% cabernet sauvignon and 4% petit verdot. Try from 2023.”

92 Points Jeb Dunnuck

“The 2019 Proprietary Red Oakcross checks in as 49% Merlot, 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Petit Verdot. It’s a plush, medium to full-bodied, juicy, almost racy red that offers impressive blueberry and macerated cherry-like fruit mixed with plenty of spice and chocolate notes. It’s a terrific blend to drink over the coming decade or so.”

91+ Points Antonio Galloni

“The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakcross Proprietary Red is quite closed in this tasting. I don’t see the richness or generosity of the 2018. It will be interesting to see if the 2019 opens with time in bottle. Today it is compact and hard to read.”
