The historic heart of Napa Valley whose distinctive soil (a.k.a. “Rutherford Dust”) has become synonymous with the legacy of its greatest ever vintners, there are few places in California wine country with a more illustrious pedigree.
Lot 790 comes to us from a gentleman with decades of proprietorship in Napa Valley and over 30 years of European and American winemaking under his belt. Known for producing wines in a “minimal interventionist” style that allows the grapes to fully express their fruit character, this wine is exactly what you’d expect – not a dense and impenetrable beast that requires years of additional cellaring before the drinking window even begins to open, but a smooth drinking 2017 vintage Cab with an archetypal Rutherford dust flavor profile that’s already showing beautifully well.
Given the current market conditions, a wine of this quality and pedigree at this price is a fabulous find. If you’ve never had an archetypal Rutherford Cab before, this is a perfect chance to see what the hype is all about with a Cabernet from one of Napa Valley’s apex appellations at a smoking hot price ($85 under original label). If you’re already familiar with what Rutherford has to offer, this will be an easy decision indeed.
