Product Overview

Winery's Notes
"The 2018 Oyster Ridge bursts from the glass with an abundant display of both red and black fruits, all underpinned by notes of violet, graphite, caramel and black olive. An impressively integrated palate reveals seamless flavors of black cherry, plum, red currant and cassis. The mouthfeel is broad and deep, combining approachability with staying power. Hints of toasted oak, tobacco, mocha and spice awaken toward the finish, while sleek, polished tannins and measured acidity carry the experience to a triumphant conclusion."

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"This vintage's blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot, 9% Malbec, 5% Cabernet Franc and 2% Merlot rides a very savory line from the nose to the finish. Black plum and cranberry aromas are leveled by chiseled charcoal and wood on the nose, while the palate's tense frame slowly releases flavors of tart red fruit, leather and toasted herb." -MK, 5/1/2022
