Provenance Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator Review Rated 90 Tight, focused and chewy, this has excellent structure, with dried currant, black cherry and berry fruit and touches of anise and sage. Unfolds slowly, holding onto its tight frame and ending with chewy tannins. Best from 2010 through 2017. Wine Tasting Notes Our Provenance Vineyards Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon displays lively red currant, black cherry and wild blackberry aromas layered with classic mocha and toffee character. Hints of clove, violet and dark chocolate are released with each swirl of the wine. The wines richly textured, opulent dark berry flavors open with chocolate, espresso and accents, and then pick up more subtle nuances of spicy black pepper, black tea and green olive on the mid-palate. Overall, the sensation is of impeccable balance. The wines plush tannins and long, graceful finish make this a classic Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon, with the distinct cocoa powder nuances of "Rutherford Dust."

Our inaugural release, Provenance Vineyards 1999 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon, established the winery's style: an elegant yet powerful richness with deep, intense flavors that reflect the vintage and vineyard. With the 2000 vintage we expanded our family of wines to include Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon and Napa Valley Merlot. Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc, our only white wine, made its debut with the 2003 vintage. In August 2002 we acquired the winery known formerly as Chateau Beaucanon, located on Highway 29, for our home in the heart of the Rutherford appellation. After extensive remodeling and refurbishing of the property, we opened our tasting room, featuring a floor made of staves from our own oak barrels, in October 2003. Read less

Herbal, viney nose but with some hints of berry fruit. Initial hit of currants on the tip of the tongue. Then, there are hits from tannin and acid. A perfectly functional wine, but it does not seem to have much depth and complexity. Additional air seemed to calm down the tannin, but that only seemed to add to the berry fruit.

Robust and chunky, with a solid, chewy core of earthy currant, black cherry, plum and herbal notes. It's bright, intense and concentrated, with excellent depth and purity of flavor, finishing with a strong burst of rich Cabernet fruit.

On the palate, the wine offers rich texture and notes of chocolate, blackberry, tobacco and espresso. The finish is smooth, showing classic varietal characters of cocoa powder and that distinctive Rutherford dust. As tannins fully integrate with time, this elegant wine will only improve.

An elegant voluptous wine demonstrates the distinctiveness of the appellation with dark cherry and blackberry fruit flavors and typical notes of cocoa on the finish.

With lively aromatics and rich, complex flavors, our 2006 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon captures the famous attributes of Napa Valley's famous Rutherford region. The wine's aromas open with lush black cherry and blackberry character, infused with subtle hints of mocha, flinty minerality and black tea. Its expansive fruit flavors are packed with ripe berry, currant and plum--with dark chocolate and toffee nuances-that persist on the palate. Balanced acidity and ripe, muscular tannins frame the midpalate flavors. This wine's graceful style and cocoa powder finish make it a truly classic Rutherford Dust Cabernet Sauvignon.

Smooth-textured, full-bodied and well-balanced, with a focus on supple dried currant, mineral, pebble, sage and cedary oak, turning a bit simpler on the finish. Drink now through 2015. 22,000 cases made. -JL The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate exhibits attractive elegance in its black currant, meaty, dusty, loamy-scented nose. However, the high level of tannin in the finish suggests it may dry out in 3-5 years. If the tannins melt away, it will offer pleasant drinking. ** SOLD OUT **
