JRV Collector's Series Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 Review

This wine is not ready. When it is, it will be a beautiful, full bodied, powerful wine with balance and grace. I can just feel it. The only thing getting in its way are stubborn tannins, which need another year or two to fold into the wine. It’s expensive, but worth it for a splurge, a gif,t or a bottle to lay down and enjoy with good friends and maybe a nice pile of red meat.
