Winemaker Notes

Rutherford Hill Barrel Select is crafted with high quality Bordeaux varietals that demonstrate lively and dark fruit aromas of blackberry and plum, with a slight hint of chocolate. The luxurious structure and multi-layered aromatics of this wine showcase the depth, range and elegance of the vineyards in which this exceptional fruit is sourced. French oak barrels cradle each harvest within the estate caves for 15 months providing a unique environment that enhances the wine aging process.

Blend: 65% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Syrah, 5% Petit Verdot, 5% Malbec

James Suckling
A wine with blackberry, chocolate and spice character. Full body, round tannins and a long finish. A blend of merlot and cabernet sauvignon, with hints of malbec, syrah, and petit verdot. Delicious. Drink now.

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.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
