Rutherford Hill Winemaker's Blend
The inspiration for this wine came from two Estate Vineyard blocks of Merlot – Oak Knoll Block 3A and Pope Valley Upper Block 4. The Oak Knoll Merlot gives the structure of the wine and Pope Valley provides body. Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec make up the rest of the cast – the former supporting the structure and the latter adding texture and red fruit.
AROMAS: Plum, blackberry, cola, vanilla, cocoa, and a hint of fennel.
FLAVORS: Dark cherry, plum and coffee flavors with soft yet structured tannins and a long, lingering mocha finish.
