Introducing the 2018 Rutherford Dust-Up & the 2018 VanGone Cabernet Sauvignon

The future of allocated V. Sattui wines

Step into the future with us — We are excited to announce two future additions to the V. Sattui top-tier wine family! Introducing the 2018 Rutherford Dust-Up and the 2018 VanGone Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons, a pair of gorgeous futures made with fruit from some of Napa Valley’s highest-quality vineyards and available only to V. Sattui’s top-tier members. What makes these wines so special? We’re here to tell you!

2018 Rutherford Dust-Up

 

From the Rutherford AVA comes one of the finest blends of Cabernet, our 2018 Rutherford Dust-Up. Made with fruit from two of the most prized vineyards in the Rutherford viticultural area, this Cabernet boasts the classic, deliciously noticeable “Rutherford dust” characteristics that grapes from this famous AVA are known for. 

On the nose, this wine expresses rich complexity followed by dark fruit flavors and hints of cocoa with a satisfying finish that lasts right into the next sip. Enjoy this wine with a classic steak and vegetable meal, or pair it with dark chocolate for a decadent dessert. We are only producing 168 cases of this beauty, so throw your hat in the ring while you can to taste what’s sure is to be one of the best Cabernets of the 2018 vintage.

2018 Vangone Vineyard

 

From a stand-alone single-vineyard perched on top of a narrow eastern bench high above Napa Valley comes the V. Sattui 2018 Vangone Vineyard Cabernet. Named the Vangone Vineyard because it came with an old, abandoned van that the owners could not get rid of, the grapes grown on this 20-acre lot are special. We are ecstatic to share the first solo-bottling of wine from this vineyard with the V. Sattui family. 

This wine is a new and unique 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that exhibits an inky black color in your glass with cassis, floral, blueberry, and spicy aromas. Fully-ripened and sculpted tannins follow on the palate along with intense Cabernet fruit flavors and characteristics. The magic number of cases for this exclusive future wine is 55. This is a special wine with a story behind it that you won’t soon forget. 

Futures

Every year, when a new vintage is still in the barrel, we allocate a small percentage, usually about 15%, to future purchases. This means that while the wine is still aging, even before it’s bottled, you can purchase it by the case with a 50% deposit and at a reduced pre-release price! Not only does buying futures lock in a lower price than when the wine is eventually available to the public, but it also includes visiting V. Sattui and tasting your future wines as they age and develop. Be a part of the future of V. Sattui Winery for years to come and get your hands on these wines and more!  

Both of these coveted future V. Sattui Cabernet Sauvignons, dressed in their own exquisite packaging, will be available for purchase as finished wines by Gold Club Members and up. Expect the just-bottled 2017 Rutherford Dust-Up Cabernet to be released late in 2020 or early 2021. Join the club today to receive not only access to some of the best wines in the valley, but also 20% off older vintage wines, complimentary tastings, barrel samplings, tours, invitations to exclusive V. Sattui events, and more. What are you waiting for? Join the family today!
