The 2014 Rutherford Cabernet is composed of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot and was aged in 100% French Oak, 50% New, 50% Neutral. This deep colored Cabernet Sauvignon starts off with crème de cassis, sage, black olive tapenade, and blackberry cobbler aromatics. Silky tannins mark this excellent wine, which offers a generous mouthfeel. Dark fruits merge with dark chocolate shavings and a touch of Asian spices which all persist through the long finsih. Accessible now, yet should continue to evolve in the cellar over the course of the next decade.
