Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon
Sourced from the world-famous Rutherford appellation of Napa Valley, this Cabernet Sauvignon opens with lush, classic aromas of black cherry, dark berries, cocoa powder, brown sugar, and dried herbs. The richly textured flavors echo the aromas, and then pick up cherry compote, cherry cola, graham cracker, and oak spice as they linger on the expansive finish. This wine displays a firm backbone, yet is soft and chewy with a clean finish. Food pairings with the Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon are a breeze if you focus on simple recipes like grilled flank steak marinated in fresh herbs, roast lamb, or juicy prime rib.
