2018 Rutherford Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon
2018 Rutherford Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon The 2018 vintage Cabernet Sauvignon opens with aromas of black cherry, black current, and dark plum layered upon notes of toasty caramel. On the palate, this full-bodied silky wine has flavors of blackberries and Mission figs intermingled by notes of clove and well-integrated tannins.This rich and opulent Cabernet Sauvignon compliments a variety of dishes including portabello and goat cheese tartlets, braised short ribs, or a herb crusted lamb shank.
Of the sixteen sub-appellations in the Napa Valley, the Rutherford AVA may be the most renowned. Legendary winemaker André Tchelistcheff said, “It takes Rutherford dust to grow great Cabernet,” and Rutherford Ranch Winery has a number of Rutherford vineyards growing great Cabernet.
Our full line of premium award-winning Napa Valley varietals includes Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (several winery-only releases), Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Merlot. Additionally, we produce Two Range Red Wine, our distinctive proprietary blend of red varietals from the Napa Valley.
Our winemaking team crafts elegant, varietally-true wines with fruit from the two estate vineyards and select vineyards sites throughout the valley. The cooler sites yield grapes with bright, rich flavors and tropical fruit characteristics. Warmer sites within the valley produce grapes with deep, intense flavors. Together they provide the winemakers with an unequaled palate of flavor and character and quality.
