2017 DESANTE RUTHERFORD CABERNET SAUVIGNON

$90.00 $90.00

Rutherford Cabernet embodies a captivating elegance that’s amplified by a winemaker’s passion for the grape. Dave Desante’s admiration for winemaking began at age ten, and it’s taken him all over the world, from Margaret River, Australia to Chateau Petrus in Bordeaux. In Napa Valley, he’s revered as an expert winemaking consultant and was the founding winemaker for Tierra Roja.  

Rutherford is distinctly recognizable for its mineral-laced cherry fruit, intense red currants, elegance, and classic Rutherford dusty tannins. Dave Desante sourced his grapes from the Northern end of the Rutherford bench, and his wine gracefully harmonizes finely etched details and tannins in a way that gives voice to the region.

The 2017 vintage combined 88% Cabernet Sauvignon with 12% Petit Verdot co-fermented and aged it for 20 months in barrel. The wine is precisely detailed, elegant, and caresses your palate with grace and persistence.

Description

2017 DESANTE RUTHERFORD CABERNET SAUVIGNON

“The DeSante Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 begins with a penetrating nose of Mountain blackberries, dark cherries, and Burgundy plums, along with hints of crushed granite, and cedar.  The palate is elegantly styled, focused, and concentrated with mixed berries, red currants, ripe plum and vanilla spice, along with that classic Rutherford dust character.  This  is a beautiful wine to drink now, and will effortlessly age for well over a decade.”
94 Points
“Aromas of the legendary “Rutherford dust” emanate from the rim as the alluring essence of bright Bing cherry and spiced plum summon memories of a bountiful summer kitchen. Every measure is fulfilled in this supreme expression of balance and poise. There are no elements that fall out of place. Every step is smooth, every curve is soft, and every sip is joy. While treading easily between sexy and mysterious, this singular expression from Napa’s foothills is a lavish and unforgettable expression of the winemaker’s craft…”
