(AG91-94 points) The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon might very well turn out to be better than 2013. Vivid and beautifully nuanced in the glass, the 2014 possesses striking aromatics and chiseled fruit to match the wine's explosive energy. Red cherry, plum, crushed rocks and wild flowers all race out of the glass, with sweet floral and spice notes that add an attractive upper register on the finish. The tannins need time to soften and the 2014 is very young, but it certainly is promising and full of allure.

The 2014 Oakville Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon from Oakville has plenty of Pauillac-like cedar wood, fruitcake, blackcurrants, vanillin, a touch of wood smoke and earth. The wine is full-bodied, deep, pure, nicely layered and built for 15-20 years of further consumption. By Napa standards, the price is relatively moderate. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Label

Patria Oakville Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from talented winemaker Tony Biagi. Culling from his background as winemaker for Duckhorn, Plumpjack, CADE, and many other projects, Biagi started this personal label in 2013 with his friend Kimberly Jones. Biagi selected the Oakville Ranch Vineyard below the prized Weitz Vineyard to source his grapes. The wines show gripping, structured tannins and mineral and tobacco leaf characteristics that reflect their high-altitude, volcanic, hillside terroir.

The Cabernets tend to be concentrated and intense with rich layers or fruit. Due to their structure, the wines are age-worthy and can be enjoyed for decades.

Winery

Patria

Patria is a personal wine label created in 2013 by famed winemaker Tony Biagi with his longtime friend Kimberly Jones. Biagi, a sixth-generation Californian, has been the winemaking talent behind famous Napa and Sonoma names such as Duckhorn, Paraduxx, Neal Family Vineyards, PlumpJack, CADE, Hourglass, and Amici. Biagi also has also consulted for Clos Du Val, Jada, Lasseter, and My Favorite Neighbor.

Biagi always looks for great vineyards to work with in every winery project he's been involved with because he says it makes it easier to craft great wine. Biagi comes from a winemaking family with his father and stepfather both making wines in the 1970s. He took a winemaking class with Anne Noble at UC Davis and found his way into the wine industry with an internship at Hess.

Biagi uses grapes sourced from the Oakville Ranch Vineyard for Patria wines. The vineyard is located on the eastern edge of the Oakville District on a large hillside estate and is approximately 1,300 feet above sea level with red volcanic soils.
