Provenance 2016 Rutherford Sauvignon offers lovely, complex citrusy notes and a bright, balanced palate from the excellent vintage. While Napa Valley received about two-thirds of normal rainfall, the effect of the three previous years of drought resulted in smaller clusters and grapes. This resulted in , thus giving the wine great concentration. Waves of warmer and cooler temperatures typified the vintage, however overall temperate weather made for an easy growing season. Ideal temperatures during bloom in May provided for better fruit-set than in 2015; although yields were still slightly below average, quality was fabulously high.
