97James Suckling

Lots of black fruit on the nose. Black cherry, blackcurrant, wet earth, clove and bark. It’s full-bodied with layers of ripe blackberries and spice, framed by firm, ripe tannins. Generous and flavorful, yet so precise. Structured.

96Vinous / IWC

Inky dark fruit, chocolate, licorice, spice, espresso, cloves and scorched earth... with myriad layers of nuance and complexity. Rich and unctuous in the glass...flat-out stunner.

93+ The Wine Advocate

...alluring scents of black raspberries, kirsch and fresh black and red currants with nuances of rose oil, tilled soil and fallen leaves. The full-bodied palate has rugged tannins and bold freshness supporting the bright, energetic black and red fruit layers, finishing with great length and plenty of chewiness.

93Jeb Dunnuck

Blackberries, chocolate, roasted herbs, loamy earth, and tobacco, medium to full-bodied, nicely textured...


United States, California, Napa Valley, Rutherford

Rutherford AVA is just north of the Oakville AVA in the heart of Napa Valley, and it is equally distinguished. It is home to Beaulieu Vineyard and inglenook, arguably Napa Valley’s most historically influential wineries. Inglenook started making in wine in the late 19th century, and Beaulieu Vineyards was producing by the first years of the 20th century. BV founder Georges de Latour is particularly esteemed for having recruited Andre Tchelistcheff, a renowned research oenologist, to move from France to Napa Valley in 1938 and run BV’s winemaking. The legendary Tchelistcheff brought European winemaking techniques to Napa Valley and vastly improved wine quality. Other Rutherford winemakers followed his lead. Today there are 5,000 vineyard acres in Rutherford and many acclaimed producers. The famous Silverado Trail with its exclusive, limited production wineries, runs partly through Rutherford AVA. Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignons are characterized by supple tannins, richness, notes of cherry and plum, depth and the ability to age for several decades. Besides Cabernet Sauvignon the AVA also grows Chardonnay, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Zinfandel. It received its AVA designation in 1994.


Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
