Our flagship Estate Cabernet Sauvignon evolves in the glass with alluring aromas of ripe blueberries, black cherry, star anise, baking spices, and minerality reflective of our infamous "Rutherford Dust." Elegant and dark, the wine gracefully dances across the palate with flavors ranging from lush blackberry preserve, rhubarb pie, and sage. Supple and layered with refined tannins, the mid-palate is enhanced with notes of mocha leading to chocolate-covered cherries on the finish. This Cabernet Sauvignon may be enjoyed now and will age gracefully over time.

Wine SpectatorFeatures a dense and loamy tack, with dark plum, blackberry and red currant flavors mixed with ganache, roasted alder and tobacco notes. Shows a strong tug of earth on the finish, though the fruit keeps pace. Best from 2020 through 2027. 5,300 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford is a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot, 7% Malbec and 1% Merlot. Deep purple-black in color, it has a nose of tar, earth and smoked meats over cassis and plums plus a hint of fried herbs. The palate is full-bodied and very savory with good concentration.
