Description

2018 COURTNEY BENHAM RUTHERFORD CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Rutherford plays an integral part of Courtney’s terroir expression series, with ideal temperatures coupled with gravel and loam soils and volcanic deposits.  These elements produce dense Cabernet Sauvignon fruit heightened with a quintessential earthiness that’s unique to the region…. Winemaker Courtney Benham has three decades of experience, and his talent for selecting vineyards of distinction is highly evident in this wine. The 2018 vintage showcases power and restraint, with concentrated fruit, earthy minerals, and a singular focus.

James Suckling Notes, “The blue fruit, fresh flowers, sandalwood and dust are so beautiful in this. Full body, firm and polished tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Really linear and tight. Persistent finish…” JAMES SUCKLING 94 POINTS

Winery Notes… Body meets pavement. Terroir meets meticulous winemaking… One has a dramatic effect on the other. Inspired by a misfortunate tumble off his Baum, Courtney Benham wines represent how Napa Valley Rutherford terroir can shape a wine, much like rugged terrain can shape a cyclist… 

Please Note VIPs: Although nothing quite compares to Rutherford Dust; this one compares to Napa Cabs in the $75-$80 range… small-production and case-worthy.
