Tasting NOTES

91 Points, Jeb Dunnuck | Consistently nabbing high praises from critics, this old world classic Cabernet Sauvignon is our perennial Trophy Wine. Vinified from grapes predominately grown on Rhinefarms Cool Climate Arrowhead Mountain, this savory Cabernet is balanced, nuanced and bursting with layers of dark fruits, oak, cigar and chocolate. With its well-behaved tannins, freshness, aromas of dark spices and coffee, and silky texture, its ready to drink now, but will beautifully evolve for another 10 years. Get that steak on the grill NOW!

Vineyard NOTES

Our Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced primarily from the family's 161+ year-old Rhinefarm Estate Vineyard, located on the southwest slopes of the Mayacamas Mountains, just eight miles north of San Pablo Bay. The terrain above 150 foot elevation is dominated by Arrowhead Mountain and features steep, southwest-facing hillsides of shallow, rocky soils of volcanic ash and alluvial wash. Pervasive maritime breezes and long daylight exposure allow fruit to develop intense concentration while retaining vibrant structure. A portion is sourced from slightly warmer, high elevation sites adding weight to the midpalate.
