Overview of the Wine
Friends for over 15 years, Tony and Kim first met through their work with Plumpjack Winery. While they disagreed about hair metal (Tony yay, Kim nay), they found immediate kinship in each others’ intellect, instinct and razor-recall palates. Close

Once a youngster who menteed under such luminaries as Duckhorn’s Tom Rinaldi, Dan Duckhorn and Alex Ryan, Tony Biagi is now a bonafide veteran winemaker. In addition to Patria, he is the winemaker for Hourglass Winery and Amici Cellars, and serves as consulting winemaker for Clos du Val (Napa), Lasseter (Sonoma), and Jada Estate (Paso Robles). Prior to beginning his consulting work, Tony was the winemaker at Plumpjack (2003-2011) and founding winemaker of CADE, Sinegal Estate, and Neal Family Vineyards.

While Tony’s career may have forged a straight line, Kimberly Jones’s has been far more circuitous - but no less accomplished. From Manhattan’s red-hot restaurant scene of the 80s, to the New York and Hollywood film industry, it was on a lark - and in need of a life change - that Kim found herself venturing into wine sales in Los Angeles in the 90s. Having befriended Lori Griffin on a hike, she helped grow his brokerage Griffin Wine Marketing to represent many of that era’s groundbreaking new wineries. Having become a veritable queen of the cults, in 2003 Kimberly launched Kimberly Jones Selections to help usher in and foster the next generation of small artisan brands. KJS now distributes both domestically and internationally, representing over 60 California wineries and over 30 producers from Europe and South America. We suspect Kimberly may be superhuman.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Napa Valley, California

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Reminiscent of the powerful 2013s with explosive aromatics of blackberry, black licorice, herbes de provence and raspberry cordial followed by flavors of roasted plums, pipe tobacco, black currants and cocoa nibs. Dense and with a long life ahead, if cracking within the next year, give it an hour decant before serving.

97 points - Jeb Dunnuck
The first vintage where they've pulled out younger vines with the goal of elevating the quality, the 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Ranch is based on 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and equal doses of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. It has a stunning nose of pure cassis, graphite, crushed stone, darker chocolate, and baking spices. This carries to a full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, yet polished Cabernet Sauvignon with incredible tannins, flawless balance, and a great finish. There are a scant 300 cases made, and this is clearly one of the great values out there in truly great Napa Cabernet Sauvignon.

96 Points - Vinous
Bright acids and veins of tannin drive through this potent brilliant Cabernet Sauvignon. This is classic Oakville Ranch in its vibrancy and youthful intensity and is a bit riper than the Allen Price. Production is down 40% from most previous years.
