Classic in tradition of Rutherford Cabernets, this wine superbly reflects the distinct blackberry, cassis aromas of Cabernet Sauvignon layered with the dusty, earth aromas of Rutherford. The plush mouthfeel and velvety tannins are balanced by bright acidity. Brilliantly structured, this is a wine for the ages with decades of drinking pleasure. If you are tempted to open now, allow the wine to open a bit and it will surely delight. If patience allows, 7-10 years in the cellar and you will feel so much more rewarded. Personally I will be searching for some morel mushrooms to sauce alongside a braised loin of pork to pair with this beauty…perhaps I'd better open a magnum!

Wine EnthusiastFrom the heart of the Rutherford Bench, this estate-grown wine is a classic version of restraint and elegance, structured in dusty tannin with bursts of cedar, tomato leaf and cassis. Cabernet Franc makes up 8% of the blend, with 3% Merlot. This will benefit from time in the cellar; drink 2020-2023.
