World renowned, The Rutherford Bench is arguably one of the finest locations for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. Freemark Abbey is one of the most celebrated estates in California, also part of the famous Judgement of Paris back in 1976. Deeply rooted in the aluvial fan soil, these vines produce wines famous for signature “Rutherford dust” and tobacco behind dark fruit flavors. Juicy raspberry and blackberry rise to the fore followed by faint dried herb and cedar, a dry lick of cinnamon on the finish. Amazing!
