PRODUCT OVERVIEW/REVIEW:
Located between the AVAs of St. Helena and Oakville, at the base of the Mayacamas Mountains, Rutherford brings forth some of the Napa Valley's richest cabernets. Here on the valley floor, vines are treated to abundant sunshine and warm temperatures, which allow the grapes to achieve full phenolic ripeness. Rutherford's proximity to San Pablo Bay gives the vines access to cooling fog, which moderates the heat and sunshine and prevents the grapes from becoming overripe. The fog allows the fruit to develop balancing acidity and aromatic complexity. The finished wines from Rutherford seamlessly straddle the line between opulence and elegance.

Made by legendary North Coast winemaker Michael Pozzan, today's wine is crafted from 100% Rutherford cabernet sauvignon and is aged for 20 months in in French oak. It is dark and brooding, with aromas of classic creamy cassis, the blackest of cherries, cola, and pipe tobacco. On the palate, flavors of blackberry, espresso, blueberries, and dark chocolate are carried by broad and creamy tannins.
The lasting finish shows hints of nutmeg and vanilla. (winery notes)

91 points & Best Buy, Wine & Spirits Magazine:

"Michael Pozzan makes this wine in a plump, rich style. Oak aging has smoothed out the tannins, which have the juiciness of fresh-pressed cherry skins, but that time in wood has not diminished the violet scents or the tobacco notes of the fruit."
