Classic in tradition of Rutherford Cabernets, this wine superbly reflects the distinctblackberry, cassis aromas of Cabernet Sauvignon layered with the dusty, eartharomas of Rutherford. The plush mouthfeel and velvety tannins are balanced bybright acidity. Brilliantly structured, this is a wine for the ages with decades ofdrinking pleasure. If you are tempted to open now, allow the wine to open a bit andit will surely delight. If patience allows, 7-10 years in the cellar and you will feel somuch more rewarded.
