From one of my favorite winemakers (Tom Renaldi), this deep ruby red colored Cabernet explodes from the glass with currants, cassis, and blackberry fruit and with that classic Rutherford dust poking through in the background. Lush, broad, rich flavors without being overdone immediately emerge upon entry, showing fine, integrated, soft tannins, superb complexity, excellent focus and refinement, and a long, deeply flavored finish. This Gem is already approachable, but, I feel, will easily age another three to six years.
