2013 Fiftyrow Napa Valley Rutherford Cabernet
Coming from a single vineyard, the “Alice Block”, our 2013 Cabernet is a typical expression of the area and is instantly recognized with its distinctive Rutherford dust. Deep garnet in color with aromas of jammy blackberries and opulent dark plum and oak influences of nutmeg, cinnamon and clove round out the nose. The palate is supple, lush with flavors of black currant, tobacco, plum and dark chocolate, concluding with a lengthy, fruity finish.
