S.R. Tonella Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford 2017
The Tonella family have been farming in Napa Valley for over 100 years, the first two generations working for a long time at Beaulieu. The family started making their own wine in 2010, and with that long Napa history it’s no surprise they’ve got off to a flying start. An intense, brooding wine packed with black and dried fruits, oak, smoke, and sweet spices, the grainy tannins on the palate backing up the rich, round mouthfeel. A wine that’s going to develop and develop.
