Rutherford Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 2002
Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, California
The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon reminds us all why Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is so widely enjoyed! This wine beautifully expresses the power and flavor of the top-tier, skillfully farmed vineyards used in its creation. The wine was artistically blended utilizing all five classic Bordeaux varietals. The aromas and flavors tip towards raspberry, black cherries, and cassis. These flavors dance among the rich, velvety tannins and leave a long chocolate/espresso finish. Bright, juicy, red fruit characters supported by layers of dark chocolate, vanilla, espresso, cedar, nutmeg and cinnamon make the wine intriguing and delightful to drink.
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. View all Rutherford Hill Winery Wines
