The majority of fruit for Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon is grown on a well-drained alluvial fan at Vineyard Georges III in Napa Valley's Rutherford subappellation. First planted by Thomas Rutherford in the late 1800s, the vineyard is now an important source for our Cabernet Sauvignon, with true Rutherford character and all it implies. All grapes were hand picked when they tasted rich and ripe. This wine was crafted to reflect the vintage, the varietal and this famed subappellation of Napa Valley.
By carefully monitoring the fermentation, carefully separating the wine from the skins, allowing natural clarification by gravity and employing age-old Bordeaux techniques, Provenance has produced a wine that is elegant yet rich.
