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.
- Tasted at Lee's Wine Experience 11/7/09
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.

A fine Merlot from a winery with a very long track record of success with this difficult variety. The wine is rich and almost sweet in blackberries and cherries, yet it finishes dry, in a flourish of smooth tannins. Drink now. - S.H. Offers good focus and structure, with black cherry and toasty oak aromas leading to plum, dried herb and spice notes. Drink now through 2015. 34,929 cases made. -TF Color: GarnetAroma: Cherry, strawberry, cloveFlavor: Smooth, round tannins and flavors of cherries leading to a mocha finish Wine drinkers gravitate to Merlot for its accessibility, generous fruit flavors and curvaceous texture. Capturing and presenting Merlots style and charm has been our primary mission since our founding. Experience matters. Rutherford Hill 2007 Merlot benefits from 3 decades of Napa Valley history with this classic wine. It is an elegant and refined interpretation of the classic Bordeaux varietal. Estate vineyards that we purchased and developed in the 90s...
Rich in texture, with ripe flavors of blackberry and currant mixing with sweet, spicy oak on the elegant finish.
Flavors of dark cherries and chocolate abound in this soft and fleshy, balanced Merlot. The finish is silky and lingering with a hint of vanilla, cinnamon and tobacco.
A classic full-bodied California Cabernet with a rich ruby color and and flavors of sweet black cherry, plum, and blackberry, followed by a cascade of firm tannins.
Elevated in its tannic structure, and the way the oak plays with the ripe fruit. The flavors of blackberries, black currants and sweet smoky cedar lead to a rich, spicy finish. Very nice Napa Cabernet at this price.
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.
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.
