2008 Provenance Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford

Wine Description

Floral, leather, fresh earth and dried currant scents are firm and chewy in this full-bodied and structured red, with gripping tannins that end with a gravelly, pebbly aftertaste.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) Subtle hints of olive, cola, violet, leather, paprika, mocha and cedar are slowly revealed with each swirl and sip. Cocoa powder tannins, a signature of Rutherford Dust, contribute rich texture and grip to the expansive, dark-fruit flavors and long, persistent finish. These muscular tannins give the wine vibrancy while promising great ageing potential.
