Rutherford Hill Sangiovese
This Estate grown Sangiovese comes from our Pope Valley vineyard. Our goal is to allow the varietal to express its unique characteristics of fruitiness mirrored with savory aromas. Some years we co-ferment our Sangiovese grapes with Merlot for color and strength but, in 2015the varietal character shined so bright, we made a 100% Sangiovese for you to enjoy.
This Sangiovese provides intense aromas of cranberry and plum mirrored with hints of dried tobacco and leather. It is an easy drinking wine with a nice balance between fruit and acidity. Flavors of cherry and savory herbs accented by a finish with body and length.
