2015 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 1.5L
This estate-grown Cabernet evolves in the glass from aromatics of wild strawberry and rhubarb to notes of red licorice and cocoa dust. The plush entry of ripe black cherry and blackberry pie on the palate is followed by rich tones of toffee, fresh oak, and a hint of black pepper. Elegant and supple, this wine shows a lengthy and pleasing granite-like finish.
