2015 vintage – 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, 7% Merlot. In 1983, Tony and Herta Peju bought thirty acres of vines in the famed Rutherford district of the Napa Valley. Since then, the Peju family has maintained a meticulous focus on the vineyard, which has grown to include a proactive approach to sustainability and environmental consciousness. Pejus Rutherford Estate is a California Certified Organic vineyard, and is planted primarily with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Tasting: Bold and complex, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon offers rich aromas of cedar box and dark fruit with subtle hints of baking spices. Concentrated flavors of mocha, plum, blackberry chutney and cocoa nibs lead to a rounded finish with velvety tannins. Aged 18 months in French and American oak, 45% new.
