Deep opaque purple in colour, the Rutherford Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is an alluring wine, with scents of coffee, cocoa, blackberries and cedar. The wine has a wonderfully velvety texture and length, with added flavours of black liquorice, red currants and a hint of cinnamon.
"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Reserve is 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petite Verdot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Merlot. It is a terrific example of Rutherford viticulture, with loads of kirsch liqueur, crème de cassis, dusty, loamy soil undertones, spice box and Christmas fruitcake. It is dense ruby/purple in colour and full-bodied, with sweet, supple tannins. Among all the Reserves from Frank Family Vineyards, this seems to be the most precocious and easiest to drink at present. It certainly has 20 years of upside to it. This is a beauty and another impressive offering."
