2008 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

The aromas open with black cherry and blackberry, hints of mocha, flinty minerality, and black tea. On the palate, fruit flavors include dense ripe berry, currant and plum, backed by dark chocolate and toffee nuances that persist onto the finish. Balanced acidity frames ripe fruit built within a muscular tannic structure. With grace, this wines dust and cocoa notes solidify a classic Rutherford Cab.
