2017 Cabernet Sauvignon

2017 Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2017 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon beautifully showcases the complexity of our Rutherford vineyards. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, with a deep ruby color and aromas of black cherry, cassis, light toasty oak and a touch of dusty earth. The palate is full bodied with mouth-coating soft tannin and bright acidity. Flavors of rich blackberry, blackcurrant, espresso and cinnamon continue through the long finish. Drink now or lay this bottle down to see the true potential; 8-12+ years.
