2016 Rutherford Hill Cabernet Sauvignon
Rutherford Hill Winery
California, Napa Valley
Rutherford Hill Cabernet Sauvignon is an outstanding example of the bold personality and unbridled flavour characteristics of a Napa Valley Cabernet. This ripe, sleek, elegant wine is carefully crafted then properly cave aged in French oak within one of the most extensive natural cave systems in North America, providing the ideal temperature and humidity throughout the aging process.
Complex aromatic profile, with aromas of dark fruits of black currant compote layered with notes of cassis with hints of savoury herbs, anise, and baking spices. Intricately and intense flavours of dark cherry, cranberry with cocoa and baking spices. Supple, round with a smooth long finish.
Average of 13 days on skins, 85° Fahrenheit stainless steel tank with daily pumpovers, pressed at dryness. 14 months in French oak
