Winemaker's Notes:

This Napa Cabernet has beautifully layered aromas of blackberry, currants, plums and black pepper punctuated by notes of toasty oak. With a solid and pleasing core of Cabernet flavor, it comes across as plummy, ripe and juicy. The plush texture adds to the lusciousness of the wine, easy to love right now, and still contained enough to age with grace.

Alcohol: 13.2% by volume

My Notes:

About Rutherford Ranch:

Rutherford Ranch favors substance over pretense. We don't waste our resources on fancy wine centers or fanciful stories. We don't need to. When it comes to making a good impression, we believe that the only thing that matters is the genuine quality and value of our Napa Valley wines. The entire family of Rutherford Ranch wines proudly bears the Napa Valley appellation. Across our full spectrum of wines, you may expect wine flavor profiles that are fresh and contemporary, yet rich and naturally fruit forward.

The winery and estate vineyards are certified 100% Organic and meet the strictest State and Federal guidelines for environmentally progressive winegrowing.
