Sanctuary 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford, Napa Valley
This is a small production Napa Cab sourced almost entirely from a single vineyard on Rutherford Bench, the most heralded source of Cabernet Sauvignon in Napa Valley. Stretching three miles from Oakville to Rutherford along the western edge of Route 29, the Rutherford Bench promises a wonderfully long growing season. The soil is dominated by Franciscan marine sedimentary materials, with some volcanic deposits, producing wine with the unique dusty-berry-spicy flavor profile known as "Rutherford Dust." Fruit from the Usibelli Vineyard is supplemented with fruit from neighboring vineyards in Rutherford to the tune of about 14%. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the outstanding 2013 vintage this wine was fermented in tank and kept in contact with the skins for 25-28 days, after which the skins were pressed off in a basket press. The wine was then aged in French barrels (72% new) for 13 months before bottling. It shows ripe black cherry aromas and flavors along with black plums, notes of cola, allspice and vanilla. Itís lush on the palate, full bodied with polished tannins and a long finish. Drinks beautifully right now with aeration or cellar it for enhanced complexity up to 10+ years. A steal!!

One of the Best Rutherford Values Around
This one is even more charming and focused than the 2012. Stunning nose filled with black cherry, cassis and cocoa dust trimmings. Big yet balanced on the palate with chalky tannins and lovely acidity, this wine lingers on the finish keeping that balance of fruit and tannins. Serious juice!

Wonderful value for this quality
A fantastic value from Rutherford. The wine is a very well made package of structure and depth with a nice flow all,the way through the palate. Highly recommend for the price!

BEST ANSWER: Hi Walt, the 2013 vintage in Napa earned 98 points overall from Robert Parker. The wine specifically does not have a rating as it's very boutique. Cheers!
