Cabernet Sauvignon
Description

We selected 100% of the grapes from our estate vineyard. The estate vineyards, which are grown both organically and biodynamically, are planted on deeper soil and tend to be warmer on average which provides volume and texture to the wine.

Tasting Notes
Appearance: 

Our 2015 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon is a medium to deep garnet-purple color in the glass. 

Aroma: 

The wine opens with aromas of rich baked plums with a hint of incense and minerality.

Palate: 

On the palate, flavors of black cherry pie are complemented by notions of dusty earth. This full-bodied wine features soft acid, plush tannins and a sturdy, long finish.
