The 2014 Rutherford, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is composed primarily of Cabernet Sauvignon (75%) with small amounts of Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc that are added to help round out the wine. This 2014 displays expansive aromas of dark berry fruit, graphite, tobacco and dried herbs. The palate is layered with flavors of blackberry, dark cherry, cigar box, and toasted oak. Its supple tannins and balanced acidity make this wine approachable yet it’s still able to age beautifully over the next several years. Enjoy with a succulent beef tenderloin and roasted vegetables with a decadent herb butter.
Blend: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 1% Cabernet Franc
