Deep, ruby red color. Noble nose with intense aromas of black currants, plums, cedar, roasted coffee and the typical 'Dusty' character specific to Rutherford. Exceptionally velvety tannins and a perfectly balanced structure reveal themselves in the mouth, where impressions of vanilla and fine herbs unfold. The final seems to continue to infinitely long and refined finish. Cabernet at an unprecedented level!
This wine only deserves exceptional meat dishes or other festive meals, but is preferably consumed as a delicacy in itself. Sit down and take your time!
Napa has a Mediterranean climate with warm, dry summers and relatively mild winters with regular rainfall. In Rutherford the vineyards are cooled by a regular sea breeze, which means that the growth and flowering take longer and the quality here is usually higher.
Rutherford is the historic heart of Napa and features a sand and loam surface that includes varying volcanic sediments and marine limescale. That makes it one of the most mineral Cabernets from Napa with its typical 'Dusty' character and enormously refined tanins.
