Winemaker's Notes

Rutherford Cabernet with balanced supple tannins and ripe, dense fruit flavors. In order to build complexity and depth in our wines, we select fruit from various vineyard sites throughout the Napa Valley, each bringing a unique component to the blend. Sites range from our own Rutherford vineyard on the valley floor to various valley and hillside locations. Blending varietals, such as Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot, are additional components with which to build wines of uncommon depth and complexity. Serve with lamb, duck, beef and game; pastas with red sauces; fruit, cheese and nuts; or chocolate.
