2011 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2011 growing season had it challenges; Early bud break-cool summer and early rains in late September and early October!!  As we decide when to pick the grapes by taste not chemistry it took a little longer to develop in the vineyard. We in fact picked 25 days after all our neighbors had picked!

This Cabernet Sauvignon is comprised of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Rutherford vineyard. True to the Rutherford appellation, this wine has wonderful dark berry, anise, liquorice and cedar hints on the nose. In the glass are additional currant and rich, black cherry flavors, with balanced, well integrated tannins.
