    Winemaker's Notes:

    Covering only six square miles, the Rutherford District's unique soil, sun exposure and climate make it the ideal site for great Cabernet Sauvignon. Andy Beckstoffer grows our grapes in deep alluvial fans washed down over the ages from near by Mount St. John in the Mayacamas Mountains. The vines are all 10 years old or more, grown on the historic vineyard once owned by George Yount (the first person to grow winegrapes in the valley) and later Thomas Rutherford.

    We craft our wines to be reflective of the vintage, varietal and this famed subappellation of Napa Valley. Our 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon is marked by flavors and aromas of tree-ripened plum with leather, soy, cola, licorice and, ah yes, "the Rutherford Dust" that this area is famous for. There is a long sweet liqueur finish with flavors of rum raisin. Enjoyable upon release, this wine has the structure to improve in the bottle for years. This wine's intense fruit and pleasing tannin structure make charbroiled lamb, beef or even vegetables a natural choice.
