Rutherford Ranch 2005 Abela Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (Rutherford)

Cellar Selection

An enormously rich, compelling but young, Cabernet. Really impresses for its sour cherry and blackberry candy flavors, and the sophisticated layering of smoky, vanilla-scented oak. Feels ultrarefined, but also quite tannic. Needs time. Better after 2013, with proper storage.
