For a taste of what made Rutherford one of the most sought-after appellations for Cabernet Sauvignon, look no further. There’s unmistakable opulence to the waves of subtly tart and ripe red fruit on the palate. Mineral elements underscore the finish, which carries on for a remarkable length with notes of thyme and bay laurel. This is a refined 2015 that is drinking beautifully right this moment.
A rich and layered red with a full body and soft, round tannins. Lovely bayleaf and rose petal undertones. Chocolate and coffee. Denser palate. Plenty of length, but framed nicely. So drinkable but better with age. One for the cellar. Drink or hold.
Features a perfumed profile, with singed vanilla and red tea notes flashing first, followed by a supple-edged core of red currant, plum and cherry preserve flavors. Subtle mineral and sage elements underscore the finish, which shows a fine-grained texture and good persistence. A refined 2015 that should age well.
