The 2016 Goldschmidt Vineyards Game Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon shows the power, strength, and balance of the Oakville AVA. This wine brings powerful aromas and flavors of black fruit, graphite, earth, and oak to the fore. Pair it with a slowly grilled chuck roast. (Tasted: May 22, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
92pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Gigantically structured and ripe in tannin and dense oak, this wine is savory in earthy dried herb, compost and crushed rock. Having spent 30 months in 100% new oak, it possesses power and richness in equal measure, with specks of currant.
92pts James Suckling
It is medium-to full-bodied with an attractive nose of currants, redcurrants, crushed berries and chocolate. The palate is fresh and juicy. Clean finish with some length. Drink or hold.
Deep ruby red with purple hues. Wonderful notes of blackberry, cherry, allspice, and pepper are complimented by toasty French oak. This delivers almost unbridled plum and black cherry flavors in a forward, elegant, and opulent style. The tannins are round and smooth without a hint of harshness. Finishes with black tea and sweet, red tobacco.
