Provenance Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Our 2015 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon reveals its provenance with vibrant red berry, raspberry, and plum on the nose along with seductive savory notes. Layers of black raspberry, charred strawberry and sweet baking spices surround the core of black currant and cassis. The depth of flavor culminates in a finish with savory dusty rose, black tea, cinnamon and clove. The refined, cocoa-powder tannins— a signature of Rutherford dust character—enhance the smooth texture and balanced structure, as well as giving this Cabernet its cellar worthiness.

Wine & SpiritsThe core of this wine is made up of fruit from three sites, including two estate vineyards— Hewitt, in the western benchlands of Rutherford, and Wildwood, on the east side of the valley—as well as purchased grapes from Beckstoffer’s Georges III. The remainder comes from fruit purchased in Calistoga and Oakville. It’s a sumptuous Rutherford wine with lovely textural give to the tannins. The fruit holds its bright plum flavor, adding floral detail as it takes on air. Lean and elegant, this will age with grace.
