Greyscale Cabernet Sauvignon 2017, Rutherford
2017 is the sixth year Greyscale Wines produced a single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. They used fruit from a famed vineyard in Rutherford, located between Conn Creek Road and the Silverado Trail for the Greyscale Cabernet Sauvignon 2017, Rutherford. The parcel was first planted in 1895 by Mrs. Thomas Rutherford and, over the years, has provided grapes for many prominent Napa Valley Cabernets. The vines are over 25 years old. The root stock is grafted with Clone 4 grapes that have a strong flavor intensity with very good color, aromas, and palette balance. The vineyard’s proximity to Conn Creek and the well-draining soils of the old creek bed combine with spectacular, western exposure to produce wines of richness and pedigree. It is also known for distinctive terroir characteristics of dusty, loamy soil notes a true Rutherford Cab! Deep red color. On the nose there are fruit aromas of cherry with a touch of bacon. Soft-entry to an elegant, medium-weight wine with flavors of black cherry, blackberry, and red raspberries. Also, hints of oregano, bay leaf, and dried herbs. A well-balanced wine with lush mouthfeel, polished tannins and a finish that goes on and on.
