Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A stunning pop of red fruit—the signature of this vineyard—opens this decadent, concentrated vintage. The 2015 Quicksilver has slightly darker fruit flavors than its preceding vintage while still retaining the juicy cherry and plum notes we have to come to love from this western Rutherford site. Elegant floral notes and a mouthwatering natural acidity brightens the palate while rich tannins carry the flavors into a long, persistent finish.
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.
