2015 Martin Ray Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon
Reflecting true Rutherford terroir, this Cabernet is the balance of rich, ripe fruit, structure, and earth. Deep notes of cassis, blackberry, and kirsch, give way to the quintessential dust one would expect from this legendary appellation. While the mid palate offers ripe black cherry, its contrasting minerality and tannins shine through with graphite, earl gray tea, and a touch of tobacco leaf. Beautifully textured, with tinges of cocoa and clove, the finish is rounded by a touch of vanilla.
