A shining example of the beauty produced from our Sullivan Estate Vineyards and the Rutherford appellation.  Bright raspberry and cherry dominate the nose while subtle hints of oak add a bit of spice and sweetness, bringing together a wine that is intense yet clean.  Red fruits carry over the palate giving a candied effect while the signature Rutherford dust qualities of earth and leather layer complexity on the elegance of the fruit.  Drink now or cellar for 10-15 years as this one will please for years to come!

Vintage Notes

This vintage will be remembered as one of the best ever for Napa Valley, and recalled the classic vintages that built Napa’s world class reputation. Summer and fall brought warm temperatures, but no heat waves, and a return to the classic Valley diurnal cycle. The results were moderate alcohol and crisp acidity with deep, rich color saturation and intense tannins, inviting comparisons with 2001, 2002 and 2007, but at record crop levels.
