Rutherford Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
Wow, I was very disappointed with this vintage. It's very flat, not much pizazz and certainly not indicative of previous vintages. I cracked a bottle from multiple cases to verify my disappointment with the 2007. The fruit is muted and dominant dustiness prevails... When I read the initial review that encouraged drinking this wine immediately through 2009, I thought certainly it would improve until 2012...well, I guess I was wrong. As a new release it was very good, no longevity in the bottle as with other vintages whatsoever.
Four and a half glasses
Very smooth & well balanced. Drinks like a more expensive cab at a fraction of the price.
Since I got this from Costco at less than half the recommended retail, and since I think it's one of the best Napa Cabs I've ever had, I'm dead chuffed as the Brits would say. Full and fruity, refreshing but not overwhelming during nor after, this wine is very impressive, enjoyable and memorable.
Nice easy drinking Cabernet. Not too much flash or structure. Just a decent Cabernet to grill with outside. Sometimes, that's all you need. Cheers!
Absolutely one of the best Cabs I've ever had!! I love it!!
External Reviews for Rutherford Hill Cabernet Sauvignon
A firm, tight, chunky and concentrated wine that's full of ripe plum, currant and blackberry fruit, with cedary oak flavors that are well-focused and persistent, ending with dry, clipped tannins. Drink now through 2009. 10,688 cases made.
Rutherford Hill was an innovator in Napa Valley in the building of caves and employment of a pallet-stacking system within those caves. Year-round, 8,000 wine-filled French and American oak barrels age in an ideal wine-storage environment of 59 F/90 percent humidity.

Connoisseurs' Guide Rated: 89 A wonderfully voluptuous Cabernet primarily from a rocky knoll top vineyard. The superb drainage and wonderfully water stressed vines produce amazingly small berries. This higher proportion of skin to fermenting
Food Pairings for Rutherford Hill Cabernet Sauvignon
<p>An almost purple wine with active aromas of cherries, mulberry, boysenberry, and chocolate. The blackberry and mulberry flavors really come through and reach a nicely rich note, which combines with a smoky tobacco flavor at the finish. Well-balanced and structured with an interesting palate.</p>
