(94-96 points) Moving to the 2017 barrel samples, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Ranch is deep ruby/plum-colored and has a fruit-forward, sexy, full-bodied profile as well as beautiful complexity. It has sweet tannins and plenty of mid-palate depth, and I suspect it will drink nicely right out of the gate.

(92-95 points) The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Ranch from Tony Biagi's Patria label is dense, dark and explosive, with tremendous energy and textural richness. Plush fruit and silky, ripe tannins add to the wine's flamboyant personality. The 2017 is a big wine that is going to need time in barrel to shed some of its baby fat. Bright acids perk up the finish nicely. The 2017 has the potential to outshine the 2016, and that is saying a lot. -- Antonio Galloni

(93-95 points) A barrel sample blended of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc aged in 100% new French oak, the 2017 Oakville Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet-purple colored and profoundly scented of baked plums, Black Forest cake and warm cassis with hints of tar, licorice and tree bark plus a waft of garrigue. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm and chewy with beautiful freshness, lovely energy and a long crunchy finish. 350 cases are expected to be made. - LPB

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.
