Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This vineyard borders the southernmost part of the Rutherford appellation, yielding a wine that exhibits characteristics from both Rutherford and Oakville. The 2012 Quicksilver Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon offers alluring aromas of cherry and cedar. On the palate, flavors of cherry and raspberry fruits combine with a dusty, earthy quality that comes from the Rutherford AVA. Additional notes of chocolate and spice harmonize with these flavors, carried on broad, coating tannins reminiscent of Oakville.
Vineyard Notes
The Quicksilver Vineyard lies on the western Rutherford bench, in the acclaimed winegrowing 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 from this vineyard.
