2016 Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford
The Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet in color. Enticing aromas of dark berries, ripe Chelan cherries, and floral notes waft upwards out of the bouquet. The palate follows the nose, displaying characteristics of mission fig preserves, and stone fruit intertwined with delicate hints of brambly red red and purple fruit. Velvety smooth tannins lead into a long, lingering finish. Nicely structured and age-worthy, drinkable now, and expected to take on additional complexity and nuances as it continues to develop with a little bottle age.
