Highlights

  • Your wine’s fruit was primarily sourced from our estate vineyards in the Rutherford nested appellation
  • A small percentage of the grapes are from the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley
  • This wine is a blend of the classic red varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec
  • Aging for 20 months in 50% new French oak

This artfully crafted Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon marries the elegant lush red fruit, spice and earth notes of our Rutherford estate Cabernet with the brooding, dark berry flavors of Oak Knoll District fruit. While predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, this one-of-a-kind blend is comprised of all five Bordeaux varietals. Merlot brings supple fruit, Malbec and Petit Verdot nuance and spice, and Cabernet Franc lends a fruit-floral perfume. The resulting wine promises to be approachable yet cellar worthy, not to mention loaded with velvety tannins, layered red and black fruit flavors and hints of raspberry preserves, cocoa and quintessential Rutherford Dust.
