This estate-grown Cabernet evolves in the glass from aromatics of wild strawberry and rhubarb to notes of red licorice and cocoa dust. The plush entry of ripe black cherry and blackberry pie on the palate is followed by richer tones of toffee, fresh oak, and a hint of black pepper. Elegant and supple, this wine shows a lengthy and pleasing granite-like finish.

Wine EnthusiastSoft and supple in milk chocolate and cherry, this wine contains 2% Petit Verdot. Dried herb, sage and pencil shavings contribute a savory complement to the richness of the ripe fruit.

Wine AdvocateContaining 2% Petit Verdot and deep garnet-black in color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford is scented of freshly crushed black berries and black raspberries with hints of wild thyme, underbrush and unsmoked tobacco. The full-bodied mouth is laden with youthful, crunchy black fruits and firm, chewy tannins, a little drying on the finish.

Wine SpectatorA solid effort, dense, chewy and layered, with dark berry, gravelly earth, graphite and cedary oak flavors, supported by firm tannins. Drink now through 2025.
