2017 The Terraces Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley, California
The fruit for this wine is estate grown and comes from six uniques hillside blocks in the eastern foothills of Rutherford. Planted in 1981 and 1993 in the volcanic soil produces intensely flavored, small clusters with concentrated, small yields. Hand picked and sorted before being de-stemming, each lot went into small tanks as whole berries. After a brief cold soak, the lots were fermented with a combination of wild and cultivated yeasts. Estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep purple ruby in color with ripe aromas of cassis, blackberry, and coffee, the palate is rich and nicely balanced with firm, yet supple tannins. Flavors of cassis, blackberry, cocoa, and spice continue with a long finish.
