Winemaker's Notes:

A classic Rutherford Cab with full violet-ruby color and distinctive local aromas of black cherry, dark olive and mineral, combined with hints of smoky oak and blackberry. The fine flavors echo the nose. Medium acidity and body plus supple tannins. With a fine balance between alcohol, fruit and tannin, this young wine already drinks well and will support 6-10 years aging. Food Ideas: Grilled and marinated lamb chops; stews and rich pasta dishes. Delicious with fettuccine in rabbit and mushroom sauce, veal with green peppercorn sauce, and dry Jack cheese. Winemaking Fruit came from our Rutherford holdings and selected growers within the appellation. Grapes were gently de-stemmed, then crushed into stainless steel fermenters; fermentation lasted 7-10 days with peak juice temperatures of 80º F. Juice was pumped over the skins 2-3 times a day. After pressing, a small percent of wine underwent malolactic fermentation in new oak barrels to integrate oak phenolics and contribute to a rich mouthfeel. The wine was aged in small oak barrels (66% American oak, 34% French oak, 36% new) for 18 months. This wine was blended and gently fined before bottling for a smooth finish. Varietal: 99% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Merlot and Petit Verdot The Place: Rutherford, Napa Valley
