2018 Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford
A classic vintage for Rutherford Cabernet showing the familiar dark, rich, ripe aromas of black cherry, plum and boysenberry. True to its unique terroir and and well drained soil this part of the Napa valley consistently produces wines with concentration and great depth. Lush and smooth on entry, the complex layers of sweet black fruit, spice and black licorice are well integrated with a touch toasty oak influence. This full-bodied wine finishes with integrated, resolved tannins and balanced acidity allowing it to play well now, but giving it the longevity to evolve in the cellar.
