The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford offers up beautiful aromas of tar, truffles, forest floor and black fruits. Broad, full-bodied, expansive and opulent, this stunning, silky, irresistible 2010 is filled with purity, power and symmetry. Drink it over the next 10-15 years.

"Captures the refined flavors, finesse and fine grain tannins of the
appellation, nothing showy here but the essence of Rutherford is captured in its subtle mix of ripe plum, currant and cherry, all refined and graceful and beautifully balanced. Drink now through 2025." —J.L.

“So ripe and rich in raspberries, cherries, red currants and cocoa, with sweet, buttered toast new French oak complexities, this Cab is fantastic to drink now. It shows all the flash and gorgeousness you want in
a Napa Cab. Will it age? Yes, for a long time, but you’re best off uncorking it over the next few years for its sheer beauty.” -S.H.
An abundant bouquet that highlights aromas of sweet black raspberry, fresh red currant and ripe strawberry amongst touches of clove, graham cracker and milk chocolate leaps from this deep garnet-black wine in the glass. Echoing the nose, the voluminous palate enters with red plum and succulent red raspberry fruits, closely followed by suggestions of
brown sugar, toast and sweet oak and balanced by bright acidity and silky tannins on the creamy finish.
