With an impressive, suede-like tannic structure, the entry of ripe red fruit gives way to savory notes of tobacco leaf, cedar, and allspice. Notes of black cherry and toasted almond are balanced on the intensely rich finish by natural fruit acidity.
Aromatics are intense, with raspberry, blueberry, exotic fruit, and orange zest complemented by layered floral notes. A graceful black cherry entry builds to a lush mid-palate of cassis and dusty cocoa. The finish is boastful and earth-driven with notes of smoke, vanilla, and dried violets. For a limited time, presented in a fire-etched wooden box.
"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford is a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Petit Verdot and 4% Malbec. This is a beautiful Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon. Layers of gorgeous fruit and some kirsch liqueur followed by blacker currants and plums jump from the glass of this opaque ruby/purplecolored wine. Fullbodied, layered and rich, this provocative wine is actually a great value considering its stunning quality. Drink it over the next 20 years". 94 points, Robert Parker, August 2016
Aromas of wild berry, plum, leather, and roasted pork belly. Lush and velvety, a dark fruit entry layers the palate with black cherry, blueberry, and dusty cocoa nibs. Finishing with suedy tannins and balanced with notes of mushroom, tobacco, and coffee bean. For a limited time, presented in a fire-etched wooden box.
Our flagship Estate Cabernet Sauvignon opens with alluring aromas of ripe blueberries, black cherry and minerality reflective of our infamous “Rutherford Dust”. Elegant and dark with flavors of lush blackberry preserves, and rhubarb pie, this wine is supple and layered with refined tannins.
