Rutherford Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon

Rutherford Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Napa Valley, California, United StatesThe 2016 Rutherford Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon was aided by 7 percent malbec, 4 percent Merlot, 3 percent Petite Sirah, and one percent petit verdot, the blend spending at least one year in French and American oak. Chewy oak tannins house sweet ripe cassis, cherry jam, thorns, pitch and leather, finishing with spice and a kirsch kiss. Potent and big, but not overtly so, and ready for drinking now alongside grilled meats.Tasted: 10 January 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 46.75 estimated retail AB 40.99 private wine stores ON 39.95 LCBO Producer: Rutherford Wine CompanyDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
