Winemaker Notes

Our Rutherford Cabernet exhibits the gorgeous terroir expression inherent in the appellation with amplification from the superb 2012 growing season. Blackberry and cassis melds with subtle mint, mocha and violet in the aromas and flavors. Hints of hazelnut from the toasted French oak barrel linger on the dark chocolate finish.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
As for the red wines, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon (14,460 cases) from Rutherford is a blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It was aged 22 months in mostly French oak, although some American and Hungarian casks were utilized. Most of the fruit comes from the Beckstoffer George III vineyard as well as Hewitt’s own estate vineyard. This beauty may be the best Cabernet Sauvignon from Provenance that I have tasted to date. Loads of crème de cassis, creosote and smoky barbecue notes are followed by a wine with deep blackcurrant fruit, some black cherries, a hint of loamy soil, nice spice, and a layered, full-throttle mouthfeel. The acids are present, giving the wine energy, yet there’s a long finish and impressive purity. This is no wimpish wine either at 15.2% natural alcohol. Drink it over the next 20+ years.

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..

The Rutherford sub-region of Napa Valley centers on the town of Rutherford and covers some of Napa Valley’s finest vineyard real estate, spanning from the Mayacamas in the west, to the Vaca Mountains on the other side of the valley.

Inside of the Rutherford AVA, bordering the Mayacamas, is a stretch of uplands called the Rutherford Bench. (These bench lands technically run the length of Oakville as well). Mountain runoff creates deep, well-drained, alluvial soils on the bench, giving vine roots plenty of reason to permeate deep into the ground. The result is wine with great structure and complexity.

Rutherford Cabernet Sauvingons and Bordeaux Blends garner substantial attention for their enticing fragrances of dusty earth and dried herbs, broad and juicy mid-palates and lush and fine-grained tannins. The sub-appellation claims some of the valley’s most prized vineyards today, namely Caymus, Rubicon and Beckstoffer Georges III.

It is also home to Napa’s most influential and historic personalities. Thomas Rutherford, responsible for the appellation's name, made serious investments here in grape growing and wine production between the years of 1850 to 1880. Gustave Niebaum purchased a large swath of land and completed his winery in 1887, calling it “Inglenook.” Today this remains the oldest bonded winery in California. Georges Latour founded Beaulieu Vineyard in 1900, making it the oldest continuous winery in the state. Latour also hired the famous enologist, André Tchelistcheff, a man credited for single-handedly defining the modern Napa winemaking style.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
