2017 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon
Tasting Notes
This deep ruby wine opens to primary aromas of cherry, mixed berries, and plum, with hints of graphite. Secondary aromas show graham cracker, vanilla, spun sugar, toast, coffee, and cola. The entry is bright, and like the aromas, the flavors expanding on the palate show primarily fresh red fruit integrated with oak influences of toast, graham cracker, and vanilla. Ripe tannins are soft and polished, and acidity is bright and juicy. The finish is long, with the red fruit continuing to the end.
Production Notes
The grapes were hand harvested at night, carefully sorted in the vineyard, and brought to the cellar and destemmed. The grapes received a cold soak, followed by fermentation at a high temperature to ensure maximum extraction was achieved.
Vineyard Notes
The world-famous Rutherford AVA is home to two of our estate vineyards, Rutherford Ridge and Manley Lane, totaling 25 acres from which the fruit for this bottling was sourced. Situated on the valley floor, which benefits from fine loam soil and moderate temperatures, this region is renowned for historically producing some of Napa Valley’s finest and most fruit-forward Cabernet Sauvignon.
