Wine Tasting NotesThe C.C. Ranch has a unique combination of floral and fruit. The plush black cherry flavors offer a nice sweetness to this wine, enhanced by the floral characteristics that naturally come from the vineyard. The distinctive "Rutherford Dust," combined with the spice and toast from the oak, deepens the wine's flavor and complexity. Smooth and rich, this wine expands on the middle palate, and the soft tannins that are associated with the Rutherford appellation melt away into a long, harmonious finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

Why? Don�t miss this rare chance to own a few bottles of Cabernet sourced from the vineyard directly adjacent to Harlan Cabernet ($750/bottle) renowned vineyard in the heart of Napa. This 2 acre vineyard was traditionally the backbone of Far Niente Cabernet�s finest vintages. TASTES? Stelling Vineyard Cabernet continues to amaze us with all that it has to offer. Packed with blackberry, spice, vanilla and chocolate, the wine has a rich, coating, middle palate. Classically elegant yet concentrated and jammy, with beautiful structure and complexity, the wine's silky tannins marry with the oak, creating layers of interest that progress into a very long finish. This is a SERIOUS collector wine that will reward big Cabernet lovers for the next 7 � 10 years.
