Rutherford Ranch Cab 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The wine is dry and tannic right out of the bottle with a firm hard mouthfeel that combines austerity with elegance. Buried deep is a core of oak-accented cassis and cherry fruit.

Round Hill Vineyards & Cellars:
Rutherford Wine Company is family owned and managed with a portfolio of wines representing the rich diversity of California’s outstanding appellations. Uncompromising and ecologically far-sighted viticulture is an ethical imperative for us. Though more labor intensive than prevalent commercial winegrowing methods, our efforts are rewarded with fruit rich in flavor and character. And great fruit is a prerequisite for making great wine.

A very solid, pleasant, fruit-forward cab, with vanilla notes and a nice but not overpowering oak finish. Actually very good at the price.

Delicious Zin. FUll bodied, great fruit throughout and a nice and balanced tannic and spice in the end. aged 18 months in oak from Dry Creek Valley. One of the best Zinfandels available.

Starts out smooth but has a harsh or acidic finish. Sort of disappointing end.

"Rating: 84/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the November 2010 issue. Simple and fairly light in character

Rating: 84/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the November 2010 issue. Simple and fairly light in character, and slightly less than all there, this mid-sized offering comes up short on density, concentration and varietal focus. Give it credit for being clean, but "clean" is not enough to lift it higher.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

Although Merlot has always been the primary focus of Rutherford Hill, Chardonnay has played a key role since the mid 70’s. In keeping with the winery’s style of complex wines that pair well with food, Rutherford Hill Chardonnay is crafted from grapes grown in the cooler climate found in the southern part of Napa Valley. This, in combination with mild oak aging, ensures the wine has balance and structure.
