It is with great pleasure that Kerr Cellars has partnered with one of Americas finest 5 diamond resorts, The Fairmont Grand Del Mar. The collaboration has produced a top-quality, small-batch Cabernet Sauvignon blend rarely released outside of The Fairmont Grand Del Mar.

Dark red hues - The Rutherford AVA Cabernet is instantly revealed on the nose with Terra Rossa dust overtones supported by the underlying Stags Leap AVA notes of black currant, créme de cassis, black olive, and a hint of violet. The nose then eludes chocolate truffle and satsuma plum with even the gentlest swirl. The Oak beautifully supports the fruit weight, a framework, not an influence. The palate is drenched in black fruit with a cedar and spice base. The mid-palate is firm and lively, brooding but with cleansing acids. The back-palate finishes poised and balanced with an exquisite and elegant tannin structure. More black fruits are revealed with each sip.
