2018 VISTA RUTHERFORD RED BLEND RESERVE, CABERNET SAUVIGNON

$25.00

The 2018 Vista Rutherford Red Blend has arrived… Following up on Vista 2017, our most successful wine of all time, there’s only one direction for us to go, and that’s up… Up in terms of concentration, quality, and length of finish, and up in terms of value for the region. How many Reserve Rutherford Cabernets can you list at $25/btl? I can’t think of another one. In the 2018 vintage, there was enough Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon available to label this vintage a Cabernet instead of a blend, and the wine powerfully reflects this. If you’re looking for a wine that tastes like it should be at least double the price, this is it.

There’s nothing quite like Rutherford Dust – Rich tannins with power, melt into your mouth with a silky dark chocolate finish…

Vista Rutherford Tasting Notes: “The Vista Reserve Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 has a gorgeous, powerful nose of blackberry pie filling, French lavender, sweet vanilla and brioche. On the palate, this opulent beauty is rich and concentrated, with a core of focused fruits and flavors including mountain blackberries, red plums, ripe blueberries, menthol, vanilla spice, and dark chocolate, all supported by fine grained fruit tannins. It is amazingly ready-to-drink now, but has the structure to cellar for a decade.” 95 Points Kevin V. Master Sommelier

This 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon originates from Rutherford’s Western side, where the soils and microclimate produce pristine, complex fruit. The Cabernet is clone 337, a clone often used in cult wines, and it’s balanced with 15% Oakville Cabernet Franc and 6% Rutherford Merlot… In the 2018 vintage, Mother Nature gifted the valley with a long, trouble-free growing season that allowed the grapes more time on the vines to develop more profound, complex flavors. Vista’s 2018 Reserve Cabernet perfectly reflects the vintage with a purity of fruit and striking complexity that expands into mineral-laced black fruits, blue violets, iron, and hints of Rutherford dust. HIGHLY RECOMMEND at least one-two 15-PACK CASE

Tasting Notes from Edward, “There’s nothing quite like Rutherford Dust – Rich tannins with power, melt into your mouth with a silky dark chocolate finish… let’s dig deeper shall we; according to Napa Valley Folklore all fruit from this esteemed region is covered in what we Napans call Rutherford Dust. Some say it’s from more traffic in this region driving down dirt roads etc, therefore it kicks up more dust in the area. However the elders say this region is known for micro-bursts of mini-whirlwinds that glide through the vineyards around sunset as the Valley winds mystically merge with the marine layer. I believe it’s a combination of both… Either way it’s Magical to say the least, and once your palate starts to recognize this AVA taste, or reference point, it becomes rather enchanting. This 2018 rendition of Vista Rutherford Red Blend is one of the best red wines at $25 by far, and I highly recommend two-three 15-packs to get acquainted; because you really want to get to know this Reserve Red… pour a glass, take a sip, close your eyes… Welcome to Vista Rutherford Dust – there’s nothing in the World that compares at this price. OMG, that’s good juice.” Ed Stephanick 95+ POINTS
