Provenance Vineyards Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2001
We craft our wines to be reflective of the vintage, varietal and this famed subappellation of Napa Valley. Our 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon is marked by flavors and aromas of tree-ripened plum with leather, soy, cola, licorice and, ah yes, "the Rutherford Dust" that this area is famous for. There is a long sweet liqueur finish with flavors of rum raisin. Enjoyable upon release, this wine has the structure to improve in the bottle for years. 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..
