Deep and dark, notes of blueberry and dark cocao intertwine with leather and cigar wrapper to produce a plush mouthfeel of sweet tannin and mouthwatering acidity. This pure expression of Cabernet Sauvignon brings the spotlight to the uniquie terroir of Rutherford and captures its true sense of place.
Hugh and Pat Tietjen’s beautiful 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.
