Food Pairings for Rutherford Hill Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley White
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.

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.
Flavors of dark berries, plums, and a hint of earth are noticeable in the very good wine. This wine matched well with a truffle oil and herbs seasoned steak. Good wine for the price.
External Reviews for Rutherford Hill Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley White
Ripe and pithy, with spicy pear and apple flavors that are complex and focused. Drink now.
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
A terrific bargain in Chardonnay is the 2005 from Rutherford Ranch. Aromas of apple skins, white peaches, pears, and lemon zest emerge from this well-made, fresh white. Consume this beauty over the next 12-18 months.
Sweet as a dessert, with vanilla, buttercream, brown-sugared pastry crust and pineapple custard flavors. Lots of people like this style, but it's kind of simple.
Light straw color. Aromas of lemon, honey, vanilla with hint of orange blossom. Full-bodied with crisp acidity of citrus, vanilla bean and flinty mineral accents.
