Planted with 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, wines from this historic vineyard have long received wide acclaim. Boich Family Cellar is proud to continue the legacy of crafting world-class wines from this esteemed site. Rutherford AVA – Rutherford is home to some of the most prominent wineries and vineyards. Lying low on the valley floor, this region is composed of well-drained gravel, loam and sand, all of which contribute to the area’s distinguished “Rutherford Dust” terroir. Rutherford Cabernets display great elegance, full-bodied flavor and dusty tannins. Vintage Notes – The 2021 Napa Valley vintage is predicted to be one of the finest in decades. Amid drought conditions, the growing season brought cool nights and sunny, moderate days with few heat spikes, leading to low crop yields and intense concentration of flavor. The berries were packed with color, tannin and flavor, all of which contribute to a stunning vintage from both the Napa Valley mountains as well as the valley floor. The wines are well-structured and powerful while showcasing a beautiful bright acidity and energy. Will age well for decades to come. Tasting Notes – Initially somewhat closed, the wine gradually opens to reveal incredibly complex aromas of dark cherry, black currant, ripe raspberry, and traces of vanillin oak. The palate is remarkably rich, dense and structured with superb fine-grained tannins, and concludes with a long, elegant finish that immediately begs for another glass. Lovely now, you’ll be happily rewarded watching this wine evolve over the next 20 to 25 years. Marvelous!
