Wine & Spirits Review
This wine has a tight structure that consolidates all its luscious cherry-plum flavor and holds it in abeyance. It feels sleek and spicy, and yet it also feels like there's a lot of flavor to develop with bottle age. Trevor Durling makes this wine primarily from two vineyards, Provenance's Wildwood Estate and Beckstoffer Georges III, both in eastern Rutherford.
Wine Advocate Review
Blended of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2.5% Cabernet Franc, 1% Malbec and 0.5% Petit Verdot aged for 22 months in 35% new oak (95% French and 5% Hungarian), the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford sings of crushed red and blackcurrants, black berries and menthol with touches of fragrant earth, violets and black tea plus a waft of cigar box. Full, firm and grainy, the palate delivers plenty of harmony and depth with a long earthy finish. Drink 2018-2032.
Wine Tasting Notes
The Rutherford appellation, located in the heart of Napa Valley, provides the climate and soils that are especially well suited to Cabernet Sauvignon. This Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon reveals its provenance with deep berry expression and seductive savory notes. Complex nuances of rum raisin, warm berry compote, black licorice and sun-warmed rose surround the core of blackberry and cassis. The expansive flavors culminate in a finish warmed by dark chocolate and oak spice from new barrels. The integrated, cocoa-powder tannins - a signature of Rutherford dust - enhance the opulent texture and rm structure, as well as giving cellar worthiness.
