This wine has a tight structure that consolidates all its luscious cherry-plum flavor and holds it in abeyance. It feels sleek and spicy, and yet it also feels like there’s a lot of flavor to develop with bottle age. Trevor Durling makes this wine primarily from two vineyards, Provenance’s Wildwood Estate and Beckstoffer Georges III, both in eastern Rutherford.
Maybe this isn’t the most concentrated Rutherford cabernet, but it has lovely fragrance with just a hint of leafy character that adds freshness. Plenty of positive tannins that gel nicely with the red berry and blackberry aromas. Spot-on, food-friendly balance at the long, clean finish. Drink or hold.
Blended of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2.5% Cabernet Franc, 1% Malbec and 0.5% Petit Verdot aged for 22 months in 35% new oak (95% French and 5% Hungarian), the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford sings of crushed red and blackcurrants, black berries and menthol with touches of fragrant earth, violets and black tea plus a waft of cigar box. Full, firm and grainy, the palate delivers plenty of harmony and depth with a long earthy finish. (LPB)
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford (aged 22 months in mostly French oak) sports a saturated purple color, solid notes of blackcurrants, graphite, charred earth, and spice, medium to full body, and solid balance. It's a delicious, beautifully made Cabernet Sauvignon that will drink well for 10-12 years.
