The 2008 C.C. Ranch has many layers of flavors that are quite distinct. Dark
cherry fruit with hints of violet mix with black tea and earth to lend an exotic
character to the wine. The natural Rutherford Dust and toasty French oak
complement the fruit. The silky entry gets fleshier as the fine tannins from this
vintage build on the middle palate and progress into a long, smooth finish.
The region of Rutherford is a large alluvial fan north of Oakville that spreads north and south in the middle of Napa Valley, CA. This sloping mass of sediments deposited by the river gave birth to some of the most famous and historic wineries in Napa. Composed of gravelly, sandy clay loam soil, in recent years you can't hear much about Rutherford without the fraise \"Rutherford Dust\", most likely do to the warm growing temperatures. Rutherford warm weather is well suited for the Cabernet Sauvignon which is the main wine of the region.
