The Vice V2 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Rutherford|
Every vintage, I have the privilege to witness the vines grape cycle and decide when to harvest them. We sort the Cabernet grapes by hand, we gently crush them and naturally ferment them into wine. The young wine is then put into oak barrels to enrich the taste and character of the wine. The optimum time spent in oak before we bottle it is wildly subjective and ultimately a personal choice. With V1- V2- V3, you have the opportunity to be your own cellar master and experience the aging development of this batch from the comfort of your home. (V1 - 12 months oak aging, V2 - 18 months, V3 - 24 months)
This red offers up a nice cassis and plum fruited core, while light apple wood, anise and floral accents fill in the background. Just a touch woodsy in texture through the finish, but pretty solid overall. Drink now through 2027. 333 cases made.
