2015 Miljenko's Selection Cabernet Sauvignon

The Wine: This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon demonstrates the distinctive finesse and bright flavors of the famed “Rutherford Dust.” To capture the fruit’s wonderful aromas and structure, we fermented the grapes with indigenous yeast at moderate temperatures that allows the wine to gain flavors and color from extended skin contact. After blending, the wine spent another year and half in barrel to completely harmonize the flavors before bottling. The wine’s elegant, voluptuous ripe black fruits and cocoa flavors wrapped in smooth tannins are perfect for savory dishes such as braised beef, grilled rack of lamb or mushroom pizza.

Vintage: The growing season started out with unseasonably warm temperatures in the late winter and early spring, triggering an early bud break. Colder temperatures in May slowed grape development which, coupled with the fourth year of drought, resulted in a smaller crop in 2015. The harvest was one of our earliest in memory with the berries smaller than usual but packed with flavor and color.

Vineyard: These grapes were grown at Austin’s Vineyard, home to our winery in the heart of the Rutherford viticultural area, one of the world’s preeminent sites for Cabernet Sauvignon. Its loamy soils and sunny, warm days create an elegant wine with red fruit flavors and smooth tannins. We farm our vineyards naturally and they are certified organic.
