2016 Sterling Rutherford Cabernet (BV Ranch 1 & 2 & Star Vineyard)
The Cabernet Sauvignon for this wine comes from three vineyards including the historic Beaulieu Vineyard Ranch #1 and Ranch #2 which are located on the westside of Hwy 29 in the heart of Rutherford. These vineyards are planted to mostly Cabernet Sauvignon and enjoy optimal sun exposure and the cooling influences from regular morning fog. Additional fruit was selected from the Star Vineyard, also in the Rutherford AVA. All three vineyard sites produce full bodied, concentrated wines with that signature “Rutherford Dust” flavor profile.
So for $45/bottle, you are getting a blend of BV Ranch 1 & 2 + some Star fruit. It’s absolutely insane. It’s 100% Cabernet, no blenders, with only a few barrels made.
The wine is utterly breathtaking. Gorgeous silky dark red cherry, seamless, perfectly integrated, and exceeded the highest of expectations. Do not miss this one!!!
