“Quicksilver” just a mouthful of Cabernet intensity. And no wonder, considering its neighborhood, just an 8-iron from both Freemark’s Sycamore Vineyard and the Bella Oaks Vineyard made famous by Heitz. Raspberries, plums, black cherries and sweet oak come thundering across the palate with the sole intention of delivering on the vineyard’s pedigree. So flippin’ good, this will bust out of our corral before you can blink...

This Rutherford cabernet sauvignon has an array of ripe dark-plum aromas, laced with baking spices and subtle, meaty complexity. The palate carves a very succulent, lithe and flavorsome impression with abundant, ripe dark-plum flavor. Drink or hold
