Wine Description

The 2019 Oakville meets the glass with an opaque, jewel toned purple. The bouquet is immediately heady and decadent, revealing layers upon layers of aromatics with notes of black raspberries, fresh black currants, black cherries, graphite, violets, sagebrush and dark chocolate. A little time in the glass reveals a bounty of crushed rock, espresso bean, lavender and mountain chaparral. With time in the glass, the wine continues to reveal itself in rewarding ways. The palate is a bounty of purple and black fruits with hints of black licorice alongside mouth-watering minerality. There is an interplay of firm tannins and acidity that result in a delicious expression of east Oakville hillside. Decant when enjoying in its youth. There is an ethereal, restrained opulence to this wine that is a hallmark for tremendous aging potential.

40 reviews for Mark Herold Cabernet Sauvignon ‘Oakville’ 2019

  1. Lisa Bayles

    Wine with opaque purple-red violet color, ripe black currant, berry, and loam aroma. The palate is tight with a combination of ripe black currant, berry, loam, mineral, cedar, and mocha. It needs at least 4 years to mature and has a medium-plus finish.

  2. Marcia Hellman

    2012: Big, smooth, powerful. Sweet black fruit, long finish, soft tannins. PDQ94+.

  3. Katherine Hulsey

    Wines by Mark Herold’s Cabernet Sauvignon is an amazing and delicious wine, with dark fruit, warm spices, and beautiful tannins.

  4. John Davis

    2012 White Label is a complex wine with hints of dark fruits, licorice, and vanilla. The cooperage shows in this wine, making it comparable to higher-end Napa Cabernets. It’s expensive, but worth aging until 2017+.

  5. Sharon Rhinehart

    2010 White Label and 2010 Brown Label are almost identical, with notes of black and purple berries mixed with granite and pulverized rock, and talc-like tannins on the back end. A well-made wine that BDX style wine enthusiasts would enjoy.

  6. Heather Watkins

    2011 White Label Cabernet: softer with earth/wood notes and cool berry, but not much fruit. Well-constructed, but nothing special. 89-90pts. $200. Drink now.

  7. Loretta Mcrae

    2012 White Label is a sophisticated and cerebral wine, with nuanced flavors of dark berries, black licorice, and asphalt. It’s the #2 among the nine Herold-made Cabernets tasted. Drink now with a decant or hold for a couple of years.

  8. Sharon Johnson

    Red wine with vanilla, spice, raspberry, tobacco, and chocolate aroma. Needs more bottle age, reminiscent of Silver Oak in its hey day.

  9. Thelma Walton

    Solid with complex and tiered flavors flaunting blackberry and black licorice notes, cool minerality frames the fruit nicely. Mid-upper tier Napa Cabernet. Best after 2017+. 94+.

  10. Karen Shaw

    Decent 2011 White Label, outperformed 2011 Uproar and 2011 Herold Brown Label. Drink now or before 2020. Not worth $200.

  11. Maia Roman

    Score: 95. Well-structured. Drink now or hold until 2017.

  12. Charlotte Oliver

    Mark Herold Cabernets – Napa: Cool, dark berries, black licorice, cold river rock, and obsidian notes. Cerebral with 94+ points. Preferred the 2013 for its powerful Cabernets with darker profiles.

  13. Shawn Thompson

    Best of the 2011 Herolds, but not my favorite. Dominated by poblano pepper and vegetal notes. Likely won’t improve in the future. I prefer the 2012 and 2013 vintages.

  14. Ian Blank

    Superb wine, best after aging 3-5 years.

  15. Penelope Gonzales

    Deep ruby red. Stinky notes, forest floor, dark berries, and herbal notes. Medium tannins and bodied. Light greenery. Impressive 2011 bottling. Drink till 2022.

  16. Nicholas Leising

    2011 vintage, green notes at first but improved with breathing. Attractive color, ripe berry fruit, lavender violets, and some green earthy notes. Medium-bodied with slight vegetal notes. Best from the 2011 vintage.

  17. Consuelo Roy

    Aromas of graphite, leather, oak and cherries. Oak and graphite on the palate with blackberry and blueberry fruit. Needs more decanting time, will improve with age.

  18. Robert Crabill

    Great balance with red berry, dry hay, and subtle toasted herbs. Acidity intensifies with air. Long, smooth finish. Not your typical vegetal and thin 2011 Napa cab.

  19. Kara Mata

    Fruity and earthy with notes of mocha and oak. Silky mouthfeel and long finish. Strong showing in a lackluster 2011 vintage.

  20. Nicholas Schwartz

    Good wine, solid, smooth with a nice finish. Pricey but no regrets. Decanted for an hour. Enjoyed by guests and myself.

  21. Rebecca Bishop

    Youthful, fresh, and big, this wine is a pure pleasure. Not a fruit bomb like other Herold wines. Softness suggests it won’t last 20+ years, but it’s wonderful. 3-5 years left.

  22. James Hinsley

    Herold cabernet – Bold blackberry, cherry, mocha and oak. Decant for 2 hours. Ages well for 10 years.

  23. Juan Smith

    Smooth as silk with bold blackberry fruit, cedar, and floral notes. Nicely opened up with red and black fruit after an hour of decanting. Best of the four bottles.

  24. Regina Miller

    Dark and deep purplish ruby. Rich and fruity nose with blackberries, baking spices, roasted blueberries and savory nuances. Heavy tannins (7/10) and full bodied. Well integrated with a silky mouthfeel. Layers of cedar, blueberries, jammy blackberries, pencil shavings and a touch of spices. Long finish. Drink till 2026.

  25. Gregory Parfitt

    The 2012 Herold White Label is Mark Herold’s best juice yet. Strong floral notes, bold ripe black cherry and black fruit aromatics, silky mouthfeel of blackberry, plum and black cherry fruit. Oak and licorice discovered as it opens up. Decant for 2 hours.

  26. Doyle Walker

    Great wine!

  27. Charles Jasinski

    Exceptional complex wine with dark fruit, dark chocolate and minerality. Light spice, cedar and blueberry flavors. 20-second finish.

  28. Cheree Lotton

    Sad that this was my last 2010 Herold by Mark Herold. Well-integrated with blackberry, plum, currant and dark chocolate flavors. This is a powerful Napa cab that has firm tannins and a 20-second finish.

  29. Vicente Bastien

    Rich purple color, strong black fruit, tar nose, full-bodied mouthfeel, softens with air, well-made but not outstanding.

  30. Stephanie Kephart

    Balanced wine with black cherry, blueberry, graphite, and chocolate notes. Decanted for two hours, wished for more.

  31. George Norton

    Big, bold, complex, and masculine with strong tannins and long finish. Wish I had more. 95+.

  32. Sonia Garcia

    Great wine. Decant for 2 hours. Bold black cherry and licorice with mocha and grippy tannins. Mineral-laced 20-second finish.

  33. Judy Burgos

    Possibly flawed. Jammy and tannic. Not my preference.

  34. Nolan Lancaster

    Improved over time, this wine boasts aromas of lavender, blackberry, and black cherry. Complex with minerality and black fruit, licorice, and dark chocolate notes. Silky tannins and a 15-second finish.

  35. Judy Nelson

    Excellent wine!

  36. Joan Roman

    Rose with a hibiscus and brine Nicoise olives nose. Takes 45min – 1 hour to open. Great with aged ribeye.

  37. Ronald Bacher

    Herold wines are exceptional. Rich with blackberry, black cherry, and plum notes, and a long mineral finish.

  38. Maria Glassman

    Enjoyed this Herold wine after dinner and it held up well. Softening fruit with additional notes. 92/100. Got it for a reasonable price in the aftermarket.

  39. Harold Chase

    Dense ruby color; fairly opaque to the edges. Smells like dark fruits, licorice, bark, graphite, dry spice drawer, little jalapeno pepper, touch of floral. Medium body and finish, good acidity, with flavors of cassis, lemon, orange, and notable, lingering spice and minerality, teasing out the finish a bit. Nice wine; well made, but not really seeing the value of the $90 “deal” price, and certainly not the $150-250 supposed normal price.

  40. VIN

    The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Ranch wraps around the palate with serious intensity and depth. Inky dark fruit, licorice, menthol, lavender and spice build, with the bright acids of this site lending brightness to balance things out. There is nothing subtle about the 2019. Readers will find a fullthrottle, opulent wine that captures the personality of this Oakville site.
