2018 Cabernet Sauvignon, Taddei Block, Rutherford, Napa Valley

$100.00/750mlAlcohol: 15.1%

2018 Rutherford TADDEI Block sits on the Rutherford Bench almost directly across from Alpha Omega. The vineyard is approximately three quarters of an acre, and we farm the fruit at approximately two tons an acre. I lightly saingee this fruit only to adjust alcohol and pH. I love the profile of the Rutherford dirt and I do what I can to preserve it in the wine. 2018 was the first vintage I processed fruit from the block, and often it takes two or three vintages to figure out how to handle the vineyard. I really love this little block and in 2018 the wine shows lovely flavors of plum, cherry and leather on the pallet with soft tannins. The nose has a floral characteristic to it with notes of dark stone fruits. The wines finish is very smooth with hints f leather, espresso and dark fruit.
