TASTING NOTES:

More spice, tobacco, and cedar notes emerge from the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford, another medium-bodied, nicely textured, balanced wine in the lineup that has loads of Cabernet character. It’s drinking beautifully today, and I suspect will be best enjoyed in its first decade of life. As Napa Cabernet goes, it’s a smoking value.

-Jeb Dunnuck, 90 pts

 

The deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford is composed of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, 3% Merlot and 2% Petite Sirah, aged for 16 months in French and American oak, 50% new. The nose comes bounding out of the glass with upfront scents of baked plums, chocolate-covered cherries and crème de cassis with hints of bay leaves, tobacco leaf, vanilla pod and Chinese five spice. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is well-crafted, featuring plush tannins and tons of freshness to support the ripe, spicy black fruit flavors, finishing with an herbal lift

WINEMAKER'S NOTE:

We cold soaked the destemmed grapes for two to three days for gentle flavor extraction, which develops the elegant, layered fruit expression that is inherent in Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon. During the eight- to twelve-day fermentation, we pumped over the cap to incorporate the flavor-rich skins into the juice. To balance the bold fruit expression with toasty oak character, we chose more than 50% new oak for barrel aging and added Petit Verdot, Petite Sirah and Merlot to enhance the complex flavor profile.
