Taste ProfileNotes: This Cabernet hails from one of Rutherford’s most coveted vineyards; a Rutherford Bench plot originally planted by the well known Georges de Latour III in 1933. Its classic roots offer ample doses of black cherry, cola and the infamous “Rutherford Dust” aromas. Layers abound on the palate including cherry, currants and black fruit jam with a bold, firm structure and age worthy tannins. Unfiltered and unfined.
