Rutherford Ranch Napa Cabernet 2009
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.
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
Editorial Reviews for Rutherford Ranch Napa Cabernet
This smells floral, sandy and taut on the nose with a wisp of smoke and some lemon pith. A bit fat in the mouth with some slick richness, this does offer up attractive pear and berry fruit; but it’s a bit ponderous on the palate before turning hard and lean on the finish. This is a bit on the fruiter side, downplaying the grassier elements of the grape. 83pts
A touch of dusty earth, perhaps even stemmy on the nose, which also shows red currant fruit, well measured vanilla and lightly toasted spices and a touch of toasted almond and dry fruit. Medium bodied and fairly bright on entry, this blends some riper flavors of dried fruit and prune with light caramel edges and layers it all over red currant and cherry fruit. There are nice spice and vanilla accents showing on the mid palate that add complexity but don’t overpower the fruit, leading to a slightly tannic but palate-freshening finish thats pretty long with lingering, slightly spicy black cherry flavors and lightly chewy fruit tannins. With air, a subtle herbal note emerges on the palate as well. Love the way this feels in the mouth, though the flavors are just a touch riper than a very solid value. 88pts
Nice Napa chard, pretty much down the middle with a nice balance of fruit, oak, butter, acidity.
Slightly bitter wine with a distinct smokiness and peppery notes. Excellent with spicy food like curries.
A sweet Chardonnay with a bit of honeysuckle and pineapple flavors. Rich without being overly oak/buttery. A nicely drinking wine. Very enjoyable.

This wine is a lovely ruby color. It is full bodied and well-balanced with good acidity and fine tannins. Our Cabernet Sauvignon is an ideal companion to hearty meals, rich cheeses and chocolate desserts.
Made in an oaky, creamy style to appeal to popular tastes, this Chardonnay has jammy pineapple flavors. It's brisk in acidity and is somewhat simple, but the price isn't bad.
There are 16,000 cases of this spectacular bargain in Chardonnay. This 2007 from, of all places, Napa Valley, is a beautifully fruited wine (orange blossoms, nectarines, poached pears, and a hint of pineapples) revealing little oak, medium body, zesty freshness, and gorgeously pure fruit. This dry, delicious 100% Chardonnay is best consumed over the next 1-2 years.
The 2009 Chardonnay offers up aromas of nectarines, orange blossoms and white peaches. It is a naked, medium-bodied, fresh, lively Chardonnay to drink over the next 1-2 years. This is another excellent value winery offering low-priced, tantalizing red and whites.
Sweet as a dessert, with vanilla, buttercream, brown-sugared pastry crust and pineapple custard flavors. Lots of people like this style, but itrsquo;s kind of simple.
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 12ndash;18 months.
