    About This Wine:
    The 2013 Rutherford Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon shows a deep and opaque garnet color. On the nose, aromas of briar and blackberry, dark cherry, vanilla, cloves, and leather emerge from the glass. The full-bodied wine envelopes the palate with tannin and flavors of blackberries, cloves, and coffee. The finish is incredibly long. A wine that can be enjoyed now, but will benefit from 5 – 10 years in the cellar.

    93% Cabermet Sauvignon
    4% Petit Verdot

    The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Reserve is 93% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, aged 20 months in 50% new French oak. This has a more saturated purple color, a glorious extract and richness, built with a solid inner core of essence that is pure, dark and impressive. Some dusty/loamy undertones are present, but the dark blackberry and cassis fruit dominate this full-bodied beauty. It still has tannins to shed, but this wine should hit its peak in another 5-7 years and last a quarter-century or more. - Robert Parker 94 Points

    This shows rich fruit with fascinating blackberry, tile dust and stone character as well. Full body, silky tannins and a savory finish. What wait? - James Suckling 93 Points, Top 100 2016

    A rugged style, with dense earth, gravel, graphite, berry and cedar flavors that give this a distinctive presence. The tannins are dense and extracted, but the slow-emerging dark berry fruit is captivating. Drink now through 2028. 1,000 cases made.–JL - Wine Spectator Magazine 92 Points
