2019 Elyse, Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherfod
Fine grained ‘dusty’ tannins and smooth flavors are hallmarks of ‘Rutherford Dust.’ The coined term for the unique characteristics of the Rutherford Appellation’s wines and the powdery earth they are grown in. Situated in the north/south center of the valley, it is neither too hot nor too cool, but right in the goldilocks zone of Napa.
Classic Rutherford style Cabernet that features the signature red clay minerality wrapped in elegant red plum, black cherry fruit. Notes of toasted coconut and vanilla bean round out the full mid-palate. The texture is smooth and elegant with a long glycerin laden finish.
