Vibrant aromatics of ripe cherry, black plum, cedar, and fine leather all leap from the glass. The supple and seductive entry is ripe with blackberry jam and soft mocha tones, leading this balanced wine through the mid-palate with notes of vanilla, violet florals, and a touch of white pepper. The finish is smooth with approachable velvety tannins that softly linger and make this wine the consummate crowd pleaser.
Kith & Kin – Old English for Friends & Family – is a Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from all cor- ners of the Napa Valley but with its heart rooted in Rutherford. This fruit driven Cab is beautifully balanced with a supple entry of bright red fruits, followed by rich dark fruit flavors, and finishing with hints of cocoa dust and cherry tobacco pipe.
