Wine Type Red
Varietal Cabernet Sauvignon
Region Rutherford
Winemaker Jeffrey Stambor

This Cabernet Sauvignon boldly boasts its Rutherford AVA sourcing with its great saturation of color, aromas and flavors. Its massive brambly blackberry, cassis and black plum expression intermingles with nuances of earthy forest loam, mocha, pipe tobacco, caramel and sweet oak spices. The structured “Rutherford dust” tannins give this wine its dense texture and expansive mouthfeel, while balanced acidity from the excellent growing season adds vibrancy.
