Winemaker Kian Tavakoli Notes
This Rutherford vineyard is known for producing wines with elegant and silky fruit rather than powerful, blockbuster flavors. The 2012 vintage displays sweet red and blackcurrant fruit intertwined with a dusty soil note, that some refer to as “Rutherford Dust.” The base Cabernet expressed full and balanced flavors, from front to back, so Merlot was not added. Cab Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot were added to enhance the fruit intensity on the palate. The wine aged for 21 months in French Oak barrels, 60% new oak (Vicard). The blending took place in August 2014.
