A slight departure from our previous Rose, the grapes that make up the 2015 Rose are Graciano, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petite Verdot and a touch of Carignane and Mouvedre to round out the wine. Graciano is a Spanish varietal that is deep in color making it a perfect wine to build a rose wine, with nice structure and weight. The 2015 Rose is a beautiful pink color with elegant strawberry and cranberry aromas with hues of roses that will capture your nose. On the palette you’ll taste cranberry and tart cherry fruit, with a little spice. The wine is bright and refreshing with a lingering finish.
Located just above our Estate Vineyard, on top of the Mayacamas Mountain Range, is Leaky Lake Vineyard. First planted in 2007, the grapes grow on the hillside facing the southeast, resulting in wine with well-developed flavors and structure. The 2013 vintage marks our second single vineyard offering from Cultivar.
The 2014 Cultivar Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc is a rich and classic Sauvignon Blanc to which our winemaker Julien Fayard brings a touch of great white Bordeaux characteristics. It is characterized by steely, green citric notes, gooseberry fruit, a grassy and herbaceous notes. The neutral oak adds a depth and richness that is beautiful on the palate.
