Winemaker's Notes:

Rutherford Hill's Cabernet Sauvignon is an outstanding example of the bold personality and unbridled flavors characteristic of a Napa Valley Cabernet. This ripe, sleek, elegant wine is carefully crafted then held in one of the most extensive wine aging natural cave systems in North America, which keeps it at the ideal temperature and humidity throughout the aging process.

The color is crimson, with an aroma of black cherry, anise, toasted almond.
The tast is full bodied, with soft tannins and flavors of black fruit and dark chocolate.

About Rutherford Hill Winery:

Nestled high in the Eastern Hills, Rutherford Hill Winery commands a spectacular view overlooking the Rutherford bench of Napa Valley. It is from a handful of the most select Napa vineyards that Rutherford Hill continues its tradition of crafting legendary wines. In 1976, while the rest of the world was just beginning to take notice of Napa Valley, the founders of Rutherford Hill recognized a unique opportunity. They believed that the climate and soil of the valley, similar to Pomerol, were well suited to Merlot and were among the first to pioneer what has become Napa's premier varietal. Today, this tradition of quality continues, expressed by wines of great complexity and character.
