The C.C. Ranch pushes the edge of ripeness yet retains the juiciness one expects from the Rutherford AVA. Concentrated red raspberry and cherry flavors blend beautifully with subtle notes of baking spice and dust. The oak is in harmony with the fruit, adding yet another dimension, while a balanced acidity livens the wine. Resolved but present tannins will allow this elegant Cabernet to cellar beautifully for many years to come.
