Yardstick 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon, Ruth's Reach, Napa Valley, Goldschmidt
Nick Golsdscmidt loves tracking down unique single vineyard sites in Napa and Sonoma and bottling great wine from them. This Yardstick Ruth’s Reach is his latest from Napa Valley. For this 2011 he sourced incredibly good, ripe fruit from a small vineyard in the St. Helena District on the eastern side of the valley just off the Silverado Trail. It's a spot where the thin soils allow roots to run deep keeping yields low and concentration high. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, Nick fermented slowly in temperature controlled stainless steel and then aged the wine 15 months in 50% new French oak. It shows pretty black current, black cherry and dark chocolate along with pencil shaving minerals and woodsy spice. An incredible value for a single vineyard Napa Cab don't miss it while it's ON SALE!!!

        Comments about Yardstick 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon, Ruth's Reach, Napa Valley, Goldschmidt:

        A clear cut winner in a very tough Napa vintage. The fruit is focused and dense but not overpowering allowing the subtle vanilla, mint and Indian baking spices to add complexity. Lovely balance of acidity and tannins providing a soft, lush mouthfeel leading to an off dry and fruit filled finish. Can you tell that I liked this wine?!?!
