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.

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.

Enticing aromas of fresh grapefruit, fig and gooseberry intertwine perfectly with pleasant mineral notes in this classic Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc. The flavors are crisp and full, showing bright, juicy grapefruit, freshly picked honeydew and Myers

Winemaker's Notes:

Expect this 2006 bottling to show refined aromas of citrus and nutmeg lifted by pretty floral tones. The weight is just right; round and soft with a welcome beam of bright acidity binding the wine together. Color: Light straw. Aroma: Pears, citrus, vanilla, nutmeg and floral notes. Flavor: Full-bodied with crisp acidity of citrus and creamy texture.
