Rutherford Rutherford Rutherford. Through and through. Sour cherry and vanilla on the nose and the palate. Lots of French oak too, but incredibly well balanced.

March Madness and Nickel & Nickel!! Vanilla and oak. Would've guessed Del Dotto in a blind tasting. Soft tannins. Very approachable like most N&N's. And as for basketball, how did Yale and Little Rock win today?!

What a difference a year makes. Good looking dark garnet color. Fruit, acid, and tannin in a nice balance. Good mouthfeel. Could use a touch more finish.

Approaching perfection for a California cab. Full bodied with smooth tannins and long finish. Love the long legs.

Bought at Pine Orchard, spring 2016, $99.99. Very rich dark berry flavors, subtle, yet noticeable tannins. Delicious!
