Provenance 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford, Napa Valley
Provenance is located in the heart of Napa Valley in Rutherford. This is home to some of the very best Napa Cabernets and in fact they're known for a unique distinction called "Rutherford Dust". To achieve the "Rutherford Dust" signature in this Cabernet Sauvignon, The winemaking team at Provenance has selected grapes from outstanding vineyards. The Cabernet Sauvignon, we selected the vast majority (86%) of the grapes from two outstanding vineyards in the Rutherford American Viticultural Area: Beckstoffer Vineyard Georges III and Hewitt Vineyard. Both are rooted in well-draining benchland sites; Georges III is located on the eastern side of the appellation, while the Hewitt estate vineyard is on the west, as is our Provenance estate vineyard. The balance of blend comes from several of our favorite vineyards in Calistoga and Oakville. The wine was aged 22 months in 30% new barrels, a combination of mostly French but also American and Hungarian oak. The synergy of great terroir and a stellar vintage give this 2013 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon its exceptionally pure, focused flavors of rich, deep blackberry, cassis, juicy plums, toasted almonds as well as espresso and clove from new French oak barrels. The ripe flavors expand across the palate, supported by the texturally opulent "Rutherford Dust" tannins. It drinks beautifully now and will continue to develop for many years to come. On Sale!!!
