Notes of bright cherry, raspberry and dried herbs waft from the glass with this classic Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon. The entry is bright and elegant, with seductive flavors of red fruit, tobacco leaf and baking spices coating the tongue. A delicate minerality on the palate creates a finish that lingers well after the last sip.

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon C.C. Ranch is a classic Rutherford Cabernet with knock-out aromatics, deep fruit and fabulous balance. Cedar, tobacco, menthol, red cherry, chocolate and espresso are all finely knit in a wine that balances elegance with power to grand effect. Even with all of its intensity, the 2017 remains vibrant, fresh and full of energy.

This is a savory, textured wine from a ranch off the Silverado Trail in the heart of the appellation. It sings in cedar, dried herb and sage, with an inviting, earthy nose. The grippy palate develops to show smooth integration of tannin and oak, with a lasting note of tobacco leaf on the finish.

Ripe and racy, with a focused beam of red currant and bitter plum fruit, laced with floral and iron notes. A savory edge peeks through, wrapping around the fruit on the finish, adding energy and drive. Best from 2021 through 2030. 2,703 cases made.

More chocolate, tar, dried tobacco, and earthy notes emerge from the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon C.C. Ranch, a medium to full-bodied, nicely textured, savory Rutherford Cabernet. I love its tannins, it has a balanced, seamless mouthfeel, terrific length, and is a classic 2017 to enjoy over the coming 15+ years.
