Coming from McGah’s estate vineyard on the eastern side of Rutherford, this Cabernet Sauvignon time and again is one of the best Cabernets showing in our tastings we host. Winemaker Mike Smith has been able to use this fruit for his other winery projects but for McGah’s own Cabernet label, these Cabernets are worth a lot more than their respective price. Winemakers Russell Bevan and Mike Smith continue to source from this esteemed vineyard for their own single vineyard Reds but for the price, McGah’s own Cabernet is a must-try. The 2017 McGah Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a seamless, compelling, and beautiful Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon. The gorgeous aromatics show off multiple layers of black cassis, Bing cherry, and earthy undertones. The mid palate is perfectly balanced with abundant blue and black fruits, followed by an opulent, full-bodied mouthfeel. Perfectly integrated structure and polished tannins lead to a detailed and long finish that carries the signature Rutherford dust component this region is known for. A blend from five of our Cabernet Sauvignon blocks on the estate, this wine showcases the unparalleled terroir of the McGah Vineyard.
