    Winemaker Notes

    Very ripe fruits of black cherries and plums dominate the heady aromas. Subtle nuances of bay, mint, roasted coffee bean, and spicy vanilla are also evident on the rich, velvety palate. The soft tannins lead to a long, soft finish.

    Rutherford Hill Winery, Napa Valley, California
    Image of 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.
