Ratings
92 Points- Wine Spectator A big-league effort, with a firm, tight core of graphite-laced black and wild berry, shaded by spicy, chewy oak and tannins and ending with a powerful aftertaste that bodes well for the future. Drink now through 2028.

Vineyard Notes
This Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from Napa’s acclaimed Rutherford AVA. Located in the center of Napa, Rutherford is bordered by the Mayacamas Mountains on the west and the Vaca Range on the east. Its climate is warmer than Oakville and Stags Leap District to the south but is still marginally influenced by early morning fogs, an environment which creates rich flavors in wine without sacrificing freshness. The well-drained soil is a unique combination of gravel, loam, sand, volcanic deposits, and marine sediment. Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignons are famous for “Rutherford Dust,” a term describing their distinctive dusty, earthy flavors.
Winemaker Notes
Hand-picked at the peak of flavor development, the grapes are crushed and cold-soaked for 24 hours. The cap is punched down three times daily to maximize flavor extraction during fermentation and maceration, which lasts 10 to 15 days. The wine is aged in 100% French oak, 60% new, for 18 months.

If you want a great wine to treat yourself or share with friends the Rutherford Cabernet or even better,my favorite, the Coombville Cabernet are perfect choices.
