Since 1984 and 17 years, the de facto estate wine of Livingston Moffett winery has been bottled under the name Moffett Vineyard. Planted in the 1960's on what was then known as the Rutherford Bench, these old Cabernet vines grown on St. George rootstock were dry-farmed on a hillside underlain by well-drained volcanic and alluvial soils. Prior to 1984, in the 70's and early 80's, the vines were sources for Chappellet, Burgess, Spring Mt., Cuvaison and Rombauer wines. Today this site, replanted in 1999, reflects more than 30 years of viticultural advances. Among these, vine spacing has been reduced by more than half, a vertical shoot position trellis replaces a horizontal cross-armed system, a variety of new rootstocks have been paired to the soils and grafted to several Cabernet Sauvignon clones chosen from test plots scattered on the property. Production is limited to a single cluster per mature shoot. To reflect these changes, it is fitting that the new vineyard and wines have an updated designation: that of Rutherford Estate. This eliminates the confusion of the Moffett name appearing on both the brand name and the vineyard designation. It also distinguishes nicely between the two generations of Read more »

  • I have been buying the Sangria and am enjoying it very much. Someone told me that some wine producers seal their barrels with a wheat product. Can you furnish me with that information? I have celiac disease, no gluten at all.

  • I am used to buying the Red Rose from Livingston Cellars and today went to the store to buy my usual 4 bottles. I noticed the label looked different but still said "Red Rose". After chilling, I poured my first glass. What did you do to it???? I looked at the label closer and it now says "Grape wine" instead of "Vineyard Reserve". I will be takin...

    Lemon water. Sour green apple and minerals on the nose, but otherwise very closed. Just lemon water and some tartness like dried fruit or ripe pineapple as an aftertaste. Definitely easy to drink alone and affordable, but wouldn't recommend. Read More

If you would care to look into t...

  • Gallo Livingston Cellars Red Rose NV

    Snoothrank:

    When you enjoy having a glass of wine with dinner every evening this is the wine to buy. Partners well with a variety of dishes, and while admittedly sweet, it is eminently drinkable. Perhaps not for the confirmed wine-snob, but for the accommodating palate, it is a splendid choice. Read More
