2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford
Culled entirely from a historic site in the heart of Rutherford, this is a deliciously fruity Cab. A perfect gateway to all that Napa Valley has to offer, this wine offers up wonderfully delicate bouquet of fresh berry bramble as well as vanilla bean and just a hint of mint. On the palate, flavors of black currants, blackberries, and dark cherries are exquisitely layered with classic Rutherford Dust as well a smattering of caramel and tobacco. A delicate and smooth structure marked by extremely fine tannins and bright acidity bring this wine into balance and make for a complete drinking experience. Enjoy now through 2020.
