To celebrate the release of the 2011 vintage of our flagship wine, The Oracle, we had a party…..actually and virtually.
While over a hundred Miner fans attended our Release Party and Dinner the evening of September 19th, there were dozens more wine writers, bloggers and industry insiders taking their first sips of our best juice, as well!
Breaking in the newly minted hashtag #TheOracleHasSpoken, we launched our first ever Virtual Release Tasting and were delighted to follow the chatter across multiple social media platforms and find out what these folks thought!
Here’s some of what they had to say:
“Fantastic fruit, ample tannins & plenty of verve”-@masi3v
“Nice blend of #merlot #cabernetsauvignon #CabernetFranc #petitverdot
that will age nicely“ -@hvwinegoddess
“I’ll be inviting this rich & sultry #wine to my table again.” -@GrapeExp_Cindy
“Soft black cherry, star anise, voluptuous tease! ….Elvis on Velvet” -@luscious_lushes
“Elegance w/dark cherry, chocolate & herbs. Silk in a glass” –@dallaswinechick
“Fruity…long spicy finish” –@rmseafood
Even the folks at Coravin Wine System toasted to The Oracle! And you really should check out this video review by wine blogger and clairvoyant (yes, you read that right), Yolanda Shoshana!
We want to thank everyone who participated in the virtual tasting, attended the event at the winery, and really all fans of The Oracle everywhere! Vintage after vintage, this wine is our proudest accomplishment and the 2011 is shaping up to be no exception!
