Rutherford Ranch 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon

The winter of 2013-2014 was one of the driest in California’s history with Napa Valley receiving only half of its average rainfall. But, with respect to grape quality, there was good news: heavy rains in February and early March gave the vines emerging from dormancy a rejuvenating boost. Furthermore, the overall dry season resulted in smaller berry size with concentrated characteristics that added depth to the fruit’s inherent flavors - Ripe currant, black cherry, rich dark chocolate and fresh spearmint. This is a wine to be savored with hearty fare like grilled meats, chops, strong cheeses such as bleu and camembert or rich chocolate desserts.
