Rutherford Hill Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley White 2007
Rutherford Ranch is my monthly case wine. It is an exceptional value at $14.99. (case price at 13.50 each) The wine opens with the scent of terroir- earthiness and an abundance of fruit primarily bing cherries and a little bit of blackberries and blueberries and touches of cedar. Nicely balanced in it's acidity and the flavors linger and last making you want another glass. This is a great Cabernet to pair with steaks and lamb, especially ones with a bit of fat as it will bring out the flavor of the steaks. Great drinking wine just by itself for an everyday wine. Compares to some of the wines in the upper $20's range. However when you does not have the complexities and robustness of wines in the high $20's up to the $50 range.
aromas of black pepper, blackberries, currants, some jam. palate offers notes of cedar, dark fruit, smooth and jammy, easy round finish
One of the signature grape varieties from Rutherford Hill and it shows. Dark violet color. Aromas of berries, both red and black. Medium bodies with strong tastes of blackberries, cherries, and chocolate with additional hints of vanilla, mocha, cinnamon, and tobacco. Very dry and tannic with a silky smooth finish. Very well blended and would go great with red meat of any kind.
Lots of fruit flavors. Very nice wine.
Very refined and elegant. Tasted 12/4/2010.

Deep ruby in colour, rims turning garnet. Quite intense though youthful nose of blackcurrant, blackberry, liquorice and smoke. Medium acidity, high tannin and full body, medium intensity of palate in vanilla, blackberry, black cherries and oak of medium length. Acceptable quality and ready to drink but can develop further.
External Reviews for Rutherford Hill Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley White
This simple cabernet has the richness of chocolate cake, its dark, baked-fruit flavors masked behind equally dark oak. A soft red for roast beef.
Also a superb value, the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon (82% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, and Petit Verdot) exhibits a dark ruby/purple-tinged color, a classic bouquet of black currants, white chocolate, and subtle herb as well as oak notes, plush, succulent flavors, sweet tannin, and a luscious texture. Drink it over the next 4-5 years.
Dunkles Rubin-Granat. Betörende Kirscharomatik und reife Zwetschgen in der offenen Nase, dahinter Lebkuchennoten und parfümierter Tabak dahinter. Fruchtbetonter Gaumen, mit reifen Tanninen und verführerischer Zinfandel-Wärme, wieder viel Primärfrucht an Kirschen und nun auch reife Waldbeeeren erinnernd, viel Schmelz bis ins saftige, blaubeerige Finale.
As ripe as they come, with lush, mouthfilling flavors of blackberry pie, cherry tart, chocolate and vanilla cream. Fortunately there's a wealth of dusty tannins and good acidity for balance. Finishes dry, although the fruit is so ripe, it's almost sweet.
Aromas of freshly picked apricots and sweet honey. The fruit theme continues with scents of crisp green apples and just peeled lemon zest followed by hints of vanilla and creme brulee. Full bodied with beautiful balance this Napa Valley Chardonnay with flavors of ripe peach pear vanilla and crisp Myers lemon are perfectly balanced leaving your palate with a clean crisp finish
