2017 Rutherford Cabernet Duo
One bottle each of:
2017 Morisoli Vineyard Rutherford Cabernet
2017 Tietjen Vineyard Rutherford Cabernet.
Morisoli Vineyard is located in the heart of the Rutherford Bench, between Niebaum and Manley Lanes, at the base of Mount Saint John. This area has a worldwide reputation for producing complex, distinctive and age worthy wines. The unique terroir consists of well-drained, light, dusty, gravelly soil that produces grapes with vibrant flavor and impeccable balance. The resulting wines express equal parts power and finesse. This historic vineyard has been meticulously farmed by the Morisoli family for over a century. Each year, since 1987, we have been fortunate to produce a Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel from this very special place in Napa Valley.
The Tietjen Vineyard, located in the heart of the Rutherford Bench, features shallow alluvial soils graced by the protective influence of Mt. St. John, which dominates the skyline just to the west of their property. With the deft care provided by Jim Barbour Vineyard Management, this vineyard yields wines which display a lovely array of classic Rutherford notes.
