The 1998 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon is our first release of a Bordeaux style cabernet sauvignon blend. The wine is a wonderful blend of 88% cabernet sauvignon, 5% petit verdot, 5% cabernet franc and 2% merlot.
The 1998 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits aromas of black cherries and cassis with hints of fragrant olives enveloped by its creamy vanilla oak finish. It is a medium dark claret in color with a lush, rich mouth feel and a lingering sweet aftertaste. The Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon is incredibly drinkable now and will cellar well for the next 6 to 10 years.
