Created exclusively for our friends and family, Proprietary wines are unique blends and varietals sourced entirely from our Rutherford Estate. Progressively styled with balance and a dedication to expressing our terroir, these wines represent an annual homage to the vintage.
Energetic and precise, with a focused, fruit-forward palate of boysenberry and ripe persimmon that transitions seamlessly into bold spice box tones and a medley of savory Italian spices. The finish is unforgettably graceful with juicy, mouth-watering acidity.
The full entry is lush with dark cherry and cassis, leading to a seductive mid-palate of blackberry, ripe fig, and a kiss of cumin. The finish is long and graceful, with lingering granular tannins.
Focused on lush fruit and crisp acidity, this wine shows an enticing entry of ripe mango and white nectarine, layered beautifully with tones of custard, vanilla, and spiced cardamom. At the finish, the Viognier and a trace of oak bring a long-lasting, juicy finish with notes of mandarin orange zest.
Inspired by the famous left bank blends of Bordeaux, our version is old-world finesse meets California opulence. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, artfully combining these varietals have resulted in a graceful yet complex wine. Subtle, soft, and sophisticated, this is our most nuanced blend.
