The synergy of great terroir and a stellar vintage gave our 2010 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon its exceptionally pure, focused flavors. The rich, deep blackberry, cassis and juicy plum aromas reveal fragrant nuances of violet and toasted almond. Echoing the aromas, the ripe flavors expand across the palate, supported by the texturally opulent Rutherford Dust tannins. Integrated toffee, espresso and clove from new French oak barrels linger gently in the dark-fruit finish. While this wine’s dynamic tannin structure promises excellent aging potential, it is approachable and food friendly even in its youth.
