96James Suckling

Really transparent and focused with ultra-fine tannins, as well as blackberry and blueberry flavors. Just a hint of mushrooms. Medium body. Fresh finish.

94Wine Enthusiast

...elongated tannin emphasize this wine's overall structure and grace... Dark-chocolate notes contrast and complement a core of cassis and plum, with a gravelly, rocky and dusty quality adding texture.

92Wine Spectator

Ripe and well-packed, with a core of succulent raspberry and red currant fruit, backed by apple wood and floral notes. Fresh overall, revealing a late tug of loam.

92Vinous / IWC

Medium in body, creamy and expressive... Dark red cherry, plum, pomegranate, mint, wild flowers and mocha add appealing aromatic nuance...impeccably well-balanced and delicious.

92Jeb Dunnuck

More violets, sappy flowers, tobacco, and earthy notes...medium-bodied, elegant, vibrant end of the spectrum...

91The Wine Advocate

...notes of crushed blackcurrants, ripe blackberries and black cherries plus hints of cloves, cardamom, dusty soil and iron ore with a waft of cedar. Full, firm and chewy in the mouth, it has a lively line and refreshing acidity lifting the earth-laced black fruit flavors to a good, long finish.

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.
