Subtly exotic, dark fruit flavors and an expansive finish make this one of our most compelling Rutherford Cabernets in our single-vineyard collection. When it comes to pairings, you can't go wrong serving it alongside holiday beef tenderloin or dripping burgers pulled straight off the grill.

Tasting Notes
A classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon with beautiful aromas of sage, cedar, black olive and forest floor, mixed with briary notes of blueberry and spicy black fruits. With ample intensity of fruit on entry, the 2016 Quarry possesses moderate tannins that are layered and elegant. Subtle herbaceous notes mixed with oak come through on the back half of the palate, reminiscent of delectable baking spices, such as vanilla, clove and brioche. The resulting wine creates a lasting impression with its graceful finish.
Vineyard Notes
The 25-acre Quarry Vineyard climbs the slopes above the Silverado Trail on the east side of Rutherford. The name comes from the old quarry that was the source of a white rock used in the ghost winery that still stands beside the vineyard. Three distinct hillside blocks, each experiencing its own unique soil and exposure, are harvested from this vineyard. The white, rocky loam soils are well drained, and the vines are of moderate vigor. Cluster and berry size varies from block to block, but all are small to moderate. This vineyard has full exposure to the afternoon sun.
