Cabernet Sauvignon№1 — 2015

Vineyard 1

Rutherford

Napa Valley

ASHES & DIAMONDS’ Cabernet Sauvignon “Vineyard I" is tightly-knit and savory with aromas and flavors of dried herbs, tobacco, tea and crunchy red fruit, destined to be aged for decades to come. In the 1960s, this historic Rutherford vineyard put Napa Valley on the world stage. In homage to those golden-era pioneers, we matched the era’s typical ripeness and blended French and American oak barrels, the predominant oak type of the time.

In its library phase, the early earth tones are further developed, enveloping the senses on the palate with a rush of aromatics ranging from a wild strawberry field to an antique cigar box. The wine remains unusually bright, youthful and remarkably intact, a sign of decades of aging potential ahead. (11/18/21)
