Rutherford Ranch / Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Napa Valley 2017 / 750mL
Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon
Geography: California, United States
Appellation: Napa Valley
The base for our Reserve Cabernet is from the world-renowned Rutherford appellation, which is home to our Abela and Franklin estate vineyards. Perfect climatic conditions and the region’s deep, loamy, well-drained soils produce dark, intensely flavored Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Our rich soil sets the foundation for an exquisite, cellar-ready wine that will evolve in character and quality for years to come.
This Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautiful complement to ribeye steak, rack of lamb or mushroom risotto.

Glossy black cherry aroma with nicely judged oak and lovely concentration. The palate is softer than the nose suggests, yet there are robust tannins supporting the ripe fruit. Good acidity gives line and persistence. Unusually moreish.
