2019 Rutherford Bench Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

This Cabernet opens with dark aromas of dried mission figs and cassis, with a hint of sweet fresh tobacco. The palate is complex with a juicy entry and silky tannins that wrap around flavors of cherry, blackberry preserves, vanilla bean, and a cocoa powder finish. This wine is one of intensity and power. Drink now or age 10 or more years. 98 Points and Double Gold Medal, Sunset International Wine Competition; 95 Points and Cellar Selection, Wine Enthusiast

2018 Tonella Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

Dark red in color, this wine pops with aromas of fresh berry, toasted almonds, sugar-coated walnuts, marzipan, blackberry jam, chocolate-covered espresso beans, thyme, herbs de Provence, grilled meat, bacon fat, and wet stone. The palate is rich, big and dense with a flavorful core of violets, blackberry juice and mulberries complemented by fine-grained tannin and juicy finish. 94 Points, James Suckling; 93 Points, Jeb Dunnuck.

2018 Tonella Vineyard Cabernet Franc

This Cabernet Franc opens with blueberry, cocoa powder, cacao, raspberry bush, chocolate-covered raspberry, acai berries, bay leaf, sage, grilled meat, and forest floor on the nose. The wine has a dense core, with a silky mouthfeel, and a juicy finish with hints of cherry candy. This Cabernet Franc is a true representation of Rutherford and has a somewhat lighter but complex profile. 94 Points, Wine Enthusiast
