Some people call their best Estate wine “Reserve,” Rockledge calls theirs “The Rocks.” All of the grapes for this wine came from the estate vineyards located 600 feet above the floor of the Napa Valley just east of St. Helena. The 2003 Rockledge “The Rocks” Cabernet Sauvignon ROCKS and here’s why… 93 Points—Wine Enthusiast magazine “Best of Year 2006” and “Editors’ Choice,”— “More tannic than Rockledge’s regular ’03 Cab, this wine is also more concentrated in black currant fruit, and seems oakier, too. It has that elusive quality of importance, hard to define but so obvious in the mouth. Rich, luscious and on the soft side, it’s a gorgeous wine, drinkable now and with the balance to ride smoothly for ten years or longer. ”The wine’s hallmark is its rich center core of flavors featuring a clove like spiciness, dried black cherries, plum, and an edge of mineral earthiness. The finish is smooth and well structured to promise years of enjoyment. Aged in oak 22 months. 100% Napa Valley Estate Cabernet Sauvignon.
