Tres Sabores Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Perspective 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

This "special project" for the winery entailed marrying fruit from a small "Bordeaux blend" vineyard high atop Howell Mountain with Cabernet from Oakville and Rutherford to enhance the elegance of the wine. Make no mistake however: this is a big Cab that lets you know right away that it has some elevation in the bottle. As you approach this wine you might imagine a walk through a forest, picking up aromas of fir and pine. As it dances around your mouth, experience the dusty texture followed by a rich, mouth-filling impression of black currant, cassis and black cherry. This lively and rich Cabernet has a great balance that makes drinking it now a lovely experience. Likewise, the steward of the cellar will be rewarded for patience when an aged bottle of the wine is brought to the table.

The Vineyards, Ranch, and Winery of Tres Sabores: "Three savory flavors" are nestled against the western Hills of Rutherford where Julie Johnson and her family grow organically certified Zinfandel, Cabernet, Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot. The Tres Sabores collection comprises three sumptuous bottlings from the Napa Valley: Rutherford Perspective Cabernet Sauvignon, Tres Sabores Zinfandel and a delightful Zinfandel-based blend: ¿Por qué no? We are also fortunate to source grapes and make a zesty and rich single-vineyard Sauvignon blanc from Farina Vineyard in the Sonoma Mountain appellation of Sonoma County....All of our wines celebrate the creativity of winemaking, encourage you to explore your own ideas about taste as well as expand your personal enjoyment of wine "beyond terroir". Visitors to winery are personally welcomed by the owner, winemaker for a tour of the winery and vineyard, as well as a barrel tasting in the cave. Guests may make additional arrangements for a vineyard-side picnic gathering under the canopy of a century-old olive grove, olive oil or pomegranate tastings in season, as well as a personal introduction to the resident Goldens, sheep, and guinea hens. Travel into the western benchland off Whitehall Lane and discover the distinctive and truly enticing character of Rutherford. Read less
