ASHES & DIAMONDS Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford, Vineyard 1 2016

The 2016 Vineyard 1 Cabernet Sauvignon is the sole wine made by Steve Matthiasson in this vintage for Ashes & Diamonds. The fruit was harvested at a lower brix, similar to traditional methods, and was aged them in French and American oak for 20-months. The Result is a simply gorgeous wine that fully represents a classic style of Napa Valley Cabernet. As it unwinds in the glass it slowly begins to release pretty aromas of cassis and red plums, which are woven together with tobacco, herbs, crushed stones and classic Rutherford dusty nuances all taking shape. This is medium-bodied and beautifully structured, with fine tannins that tightly wrapping its core. Showing incredible balance, focus and precision, this cabernet is already absolutely sensational, yet also possesses the potential to thrive in the cellar for many years to come.
