Description

The Rutherford Ranch Charlie’s Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is quintessential Rutherford. It captures the essence of the Abela Vineyard and speaks to the land and how it is cared for. From a certified sustainable vineyard, this wine is complex with many layers that will unfold as you sip. Notes of cassis, blackberry, anise and cocoa are framed perfectly by the sweet oak of French puncheons. There is a subtle power to this wine that will allow it to be enjoyable upon release or cellared for years of continued exploration.
