This third edition of the Wilderotter Reserve Cabernet is our version of a Bordeaux blend in California. All five Bordeaux varietals show up to the party: 2.5% each of Merlot, Petite Verdot and Malbec, and 5% Cabernet Franc were added to the Rutherford Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
As with the color and aroma of a beautiful red rose, so goes this equally beautiful wine, with bright notes of cherries and plums, in front of a veil of baking spices: cloves, nutmeg, and cardamom. A deeper breath will reveal the perfume of clean, rich earth. When tasting the wine, toasted notes of vanilla, toffee and those baking spices prevail. This wine possesses a balanced acidity that lifts the fruit onto the palate. Finally, the depth of the flavors all come together, and softly taper to a finish of bittersweet chocolate and cherry fruit. As with all the Wilderotter red wines, it can be enjoyed now or cellared for a few years for a wonderful return on investment. limited (only 60 bottles produced, and bottled by hand)
