C.C. Ranch Napa Valley Cabernet has been in our portfolio since 2005. Tasted in April this year, Winemaker Darice Spinelli noted that this Rutherford wine is a bit darker compared to previous vintages due to the extra tank time. She says the wine exhibits a beautiful blend of red and black cherry fruits, hints of Rutherford Dust and a rich core of tannin that adds depth to the wine. As this wine ages in the barrel, it will harmonize and gain complexity from the oak, adding opulence upon release.
