W I N E M A K E R N O T E S The 2019 vintage was similar to 2018 in that the mild season allowed for long and slow maturation. The lack of major heat waves and virtually no rain during harvest allowed us to pick every vineyard block at optimal ripeness. The 2019 vintage was slightly lower yielding, which resulted in greater concentration in the wines. Robust structures and rich flavors are consistent throughout the vintage. In 2019, we fermented the grapes in a combination of small open top and closed top tanks, adding layers of complexity to the resulting wine. This balanced Cabernet Sauvignon offers silky smooth textures that showcase the classic Rutherford Dust. It is bold and rich with the structure to age well and reward cellaring for 15+ years.
