Food Pairings for Rutherford Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon
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.
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.
I like it, not too light or too heavy. Good berry taste. Pants thinks it tastes like a rubber band.
External Reviews for Rutherford Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon
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.
Winemaker's Notes: Wines from Rutherford express the heart and soul of Napa Valley. We strive to create wines with fresh aromas, rich flavors and a smooth balanced finish. But along with true taste, Rutherford Ranch offers genuine value too.
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.
Rich in texture, with ripe flavors of blackberry and currant mixing with sweet, spicy oak on the elegant finish.
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.
The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon reveals soft berry fruit along with hints of mint and cedar. It is an elegant, medium-bodied, nicely constructed Cabernet meant for consumption over the next 1-2 years.
A little sharp, but easily the winery's best non-vineyard designated Cab since the '02. Shows a ripeness level that slam dunks cherries, blackberries, cola and oak onto the palate, yet maintains an elegant dryness.
Wine Tasting Notes Our Cabernet Sauvignon has complex layers of black currant, anise, and ripe Bing cherry intertwined with subtle nuances of toasty oak. This wine is full-bodied with a deep ruby red color. Full fruit flavors of black currant and pomegranate, with soft undertones of vanilla, fill your mouth on the very first sip. Enjoy the ripe fruit, rich and creamy palate and just the right amount of tannins.
