2012 Kith & Kin Cabernet Sauvignon 750ML
This wine makes it intentions known with aromas of bright strawberry, raspberry, and cranberry, building with notes of black cherry, toasted oak and vanilla. The lush full entry teases the palate with a confectionery blend of red fruits evolving into darker, richer profile.
With a nearly perfect growing season, the fruit in the vineyard ripened steadily, leading to ideal winemaking conditions. Starting with some of our favorite Rutherford home vineyard lots, we carefully selected wines from neighboring appellations to create a Cabernet that reflects multiple characteristics of our world famous Napa Valley appellation. To help produce a fruit focused wine, cellar practices include a short and cool maceration period to ensure well-balanced tannins, and aged in second year French oak for 15 months.
76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Petit Verdot, 2% Petite Sirah, 2% Merlot
