Provenance Vineyards Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2000
The key for this vintage was a cool August, which gave the grapes a long hangtime on the vine to fully develop flavors. Packed with aromas of pencil lead, plum, toffee, clove and cinnamon (even a dash of Graham cracker crust), this 2000 Provenance Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon is a balanced wine with finesse, power and the classic "Rutherford Dust" texture of cocoa powder. This wine's intense fruit and pleasing tannin structure make charbroiled lamb, beef or even vegetables a natural choice.
As their name suggests, the pedigree of Provenance wines is of utmost importance. They go straight to the source for the highest quality fruit in the Napa Valley, forging enduring relationships with the region’s top wine grape producers. Their winemakers are purists, relying on the finest winemaking traditions to extract elegant, powerful wines that express their premium vineyard origins rather than the winemakers’ interventions..
