About

Product Description:

The 2018 abounds in the famous Rutherford ‘Dust’ – defined for us by a synergy of herbs and black fruit, tension between the flavors, and a long finish reminiscent of rough velvet. Deliciously exuberant now, the ‘18 has the makings of a wine that in time will show everything Rutherford cabernet is capable of—we suggest you put some bottles deep in your cellar. JW

All lots were destemmed and crushed to tank, and all began fermentation on the strength of their native yeast. Fermentations lasted between 7 and 10 days, with open hose pumpovers performed three times daily to mix the skins and promote gentle extraction. Tannins were generally moderate, and most lots were pressed at dryness. Natural malolactic fermentation completed in barrel. Five rackings were performed over the course of the wine’s 20 months of aging in French oak barrels (~20% new overall). Bottled unfined and unfiltered. RW
