The Collector – 2016 RU3

RU3 is the signature expression of St. Supérys Rutherford Estate Vineyard. This 2016 vintage represents a trinity of the vineyards best blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot grown on the Rutherford Bench, a geologic marvel of well-drained, mineral-rich alluvial soils and sandy clay loam that yields a world-renowned complexity of flavor. Hand-crafted at every turn, RU3s fruit is hand-sorted twice, first as clusters and then individual berries and placed in barrels that are hand-rolled during fermentation. Less than two hundred cases of this singular wine exist, the pride of winemaker Michael Scholz. Presented in a gift box.
