Cabernet Sauvignon - Rutherford
2012
2010
2009

In 2001, a favorite hilltop retreat rising just above the Terlato Family’s winery in the Rutherford Appellation was planted to Cabernet Sauvignon with the dream to continue the Terlato’s quest to craft great Cabernet from the most distinctive appellations of Napa Valley. The rocky soils and steep west/south-west facing slope offered a perfect environment to create Cabernet with an intensity of structure emblematic of the region.
