Winemaker Jeffrey Stambor Notes
Our 2006 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon captures the true essence of Rutherford. “It is like walking through a blackberry bramble in the heat of summer,” explains Winemaker Jeffrey Stambor. “There is an explosion of blackberry fruit, earthiness as you kick up some dust and a hint of dried leaf character .” With opulent dark berry, black cherry, cocoa, anise, forest loam and mineral notes, the wine has well-integrated oak spices that heighten alongside fruity aromas for a long, lingering finish.
Rutherford soil is ideal for growing Cabernet Sauvignon and creates a signature taste in wines crafted from this region. To pull forward these characteristics, we continuously roll out new techniques on small lots, capturing the n ...more... uances of individual blocks. During fermentation, we used generous pump-overs for maximum extraction, followed by malolactic fermentation to round the tannins. We then blended these lots with a touch of Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec, adding complexity and depth
