2020
Rutherford "Ticen House"

Cabernet Sauvignon
SKU: TVCSR203

Our powerful boldest premium reds, dark, age-worthy wines of substance. Regardless of their grape, these heavyweights are barrel-aged and quite concentrated in flavor.

FOOD PAIRING: These big reds perform best with rich, high-protein foods such as AGED CHEESES & RED MEATS and work brilliantly with RICHER, BOLDER SAUCES too.

Tasting Notes
Appearance: 

This is a dark purple Cabernet Sauvignon.

Aroma: 

Aromas of stewed plums, tobacco, blueberry and raspberry. 

Palate: 

Rich black fruit flavors, layered with chocolate, allspice and notes of dusty earth, coat the palate. Full-bodied, the tannins are velvety and well-balanced and lead to a lingering finish.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

2020 kicked of with ideal growing conditions. Mild temperatures led to evenly developed clusters and an early budbreak was followed by a warm to hot summer. Low winter rains resulted in smaller berries with concentrated flavors. Harvest began in early August with normal yields and exceptional fruit quality.
