2005 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford Estate

2005 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford Estate

Untitled Document Winemaker Notes: Harvested Sept. through Oct. 2005 from our organically grown Rutherford Vineyard where Cabernet Sauvignon vines thrive in the alluvial fans comprised of gravel, sand and loam soils in the acclaimed Rutherford Bench. Hand picked and hand sorted before fruit spent extended maceration time on the skins to achieve vibrant color and solid tannin structure. Barrel aged for 26 months in 85% new French Oak. 89% Cabernet Sauvignon blended with 6% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc. Limited production.

Sensory Description: Deep garnet in color. Smoky and spicy with plenty of concentrated plum and blackberry notes and a hint of cocoa on the nose. The entrance is elegant and sexy, followed by layers of opulent flavors of Bing cherry and vanilla that dance across the palate. The finish is rich and lengthy with well-developed tannins that smooth out as the wine lingers in the mouth.
