Rutherford Ranch Sauvignon Blanc 2013
The long, warm days of the Napa Valley create rich, concentrated grapes. The cool nights help preserve balance, acidity and the aromatic qualities of the fruit. The 2011 growing season was cool and long - a wet spring, followed by a mild summer and rain at harvest - presenting a particularly challenging vintage for our winemakers. The result is a medium to full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with fine-grained tannins, and a long, lingering finish. Enjoy this wine with grilled meats, roast beef au jus, or Penne alla vodka and with strong cheeses such as bleu or camembert. Also delicious with your favorite chocolate desserts.
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.
Editorial Reviews for Rutherford Ranch Sauvignon Blanc
Peach pit and hints of minerality greet the nose followed by faint freshly cut grass and green fruit aromas with a hint of yeastiness. Broad and bit soft in the mouth, this is nicely transparent with soft flavors of white peach, lemon, and green mango. A soft, and somewhat creamy style of Sauvignon Blanc, some bitter citrus oils appear on the backend, with a hint of salty minerality adding a touch of complexity to the modest finish. 86pts

Firm, but with good intensity to the black currant and plum flavors. Herb tones fold into mocha-scented cedary oak and ripe tannins on the finish.
