2014
Rutherford

Cabernet Sauvignon
Description

We selected grapes from some of our finest vineyards in Rutherford. Two-thirds originated from our Estate and one- third from a vineyard on the west side of Rutherford. The estate vineyards are planted on deeper soil and tend to be warmer on average which provides volume and texture to the wine. The grapes from the west side are in a cooler site which provides coffee notes and a subtle minerality.

Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

Opens with aromas of Rainier cherry with a touch of light blonde roast coffee. 

Palate: 

Flavors of Santa Rosa plum and raspberry compote with a wet stone finish are complemented with a lot of good structure.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

The 2014 vintage in Napa Valley was one of the earliest harvested vintages in years. A warm spring led to early bud break and created the perfect environment for flowering and fruit set. With warm days and cool nights, our team was able to maintain ideal acid levels with optimum, bright fruit flavors.
