Winemaker's Notes:

The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon shows all the characteristics of a fine Rutherford grown Cabernet Sauvignon. The nose is complex, filled with blackberry, current and spice aromas. On the palate, the dense blackberry is accompanied by extracts of cinnamon, bing cherry, mocha and hints of cedar, with the Rutherford characteristic dusty tannins on the finish.

About Sawyer Cellars:

In the heart of Napa Valley exists a charming, family-owned winery and estate dating back to the early 1930's. Sawyer Cellars is dedicated to making premium Estate wines, and sharing their unforgettable winery with their guests.

Here's what they like share about their wines: Our wines reflect the unique characteristics of each vintage and of the Rutherford growing district. It begins in the vineyard---as we use only a small percentage of the grapes grown on our estate, the fruit that is perfect to the eye and loaded with flavor. We hire harvest crews chosen for their selective picking techniques, and then we hand sort to insure we are using nothing but the finest fruit. Using gentle, gravity-fed systems in the winery, a judicious use of oak barrel aging in the finest French oak, and daily attention to the wines during aging, we produce the finest wines possible in small, select quantities.
