Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Graceful notes of violet accented by aromas of fresh raspberry, Bing cherry and Herbs de Provence add intrigue to the nose. The 2017 Quicksilver Cabernet is round and inviting. Rich, dark red raspberry flavors are supple and juicy, while a soft core of tannin makes this an approachable, yet age worthy wine.
Vineyard Notes
The Quicksilver Vineyard lies on the western Rutherford bench, in the acclaimed area on Bella Oaks Lane. The soils are predominantly well drained loams that produce vines of moderate size. These older vines were planted to the California sprawl system, with wider spacing and a divided canopy, giving great exposure to the fruit. Minimal irrigation is needed to obtain maximum fruit potential.
