Winemaker Kian Tavakoli Notes
This Rutherford vineyard is known for producing wines with elegant and silky fruit rather than powerful, blockbuster flavors. The 2013 vintage displays sweet red and blackcurrant fruit intertwined with a dusty soil note, which some refer to as “Rutherford Dust.” Merlot was added to support the mid-palette. Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot were added to enhance the fruit intensity on the finish. The wine aged for 21 months in French Oak barrels, 60% new oak (Vicard). The blending took place in August 2015.
