The Story: Adler Deutsch Vineyard is located on the edge of the acclaimed West Rutherford Bench. Its soils are composed of Bale loam, rounded gravel and cobbled stones, providing good water drainage. This 2.17 acre site was planted in 2004 to Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyard is planted in three blocks to 5×8 spacing of low-trained vines. The vineyard is meticulously farmed by Jim Barbour and the team at Barbour Vineyards to maintain the health of the vines and preserve the integrity of the land. Add winemaker Aaron Pott to the mix and you have a tandem winning winemaking team!
Tasting Notes: The 2011 Adler Deutsch Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a classically-styled Cabernet crafted from estate-grown fruit. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petit Verdot, the 2011 vintage is a dense ruby color, verging on purple. On the nose, the wine reveals fresh, ripe red and black fruits, including Bing cherry, black cassis, and blackberry along with licorice, violet and dried lavender. These follow through on the lush and full-bodied palate to combine with chocolate, vanilla and espresso. The mid-palate is juicy and the finish is a blend of lingering dark fruits and espresso wrapped up in supple and seductive tannins. The 2011 Adler Deutsch Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon will age well for the next decade.
