2020 Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford
TASTING NOTES: Grown in soil once a riverbed, these wines are a blend of fruity and herbal flavors with a hint of spice, known as “Rutherford dust.” Meadowcroft’s 2020 Rutherford Cabernet is the perfect example, with its enticing aromas of toasty oak, dark cherry, and floral notes, followed by rich flavors of cranberry, mineral,
pomegranate, cherry, and tobacco. Get ready to indulge in a wine that truly embodies the spirit of Rutherford.
FOOD PAIRING: It’s difficult to steer away from the usual red meat recommendations, but a well-marbled cut of beef filet will perfectly complement the balanced acidity and rich fruit flavors of this wine. Vegetarians will enjoy dishes incorporating wild mushrooms, sun dried tomatoes or aromatic cheeses.
