Rutherford Hill Cabernet Sauvignon: A Symphony of Flavour from Napa Valley

Embark on a captivating sensory journey with the Rutherford Hill Cabernet Sauvignon, a bold and complex wine crafted from the finest grapes of California's renowned Napa Valley. This exquisite expression of the Rutherford appellation unfolds with a captivating aromatic profile, revealing layers of dark fruit compote, dominated by black currant and cassis notes, intertwined with hints of savoury herbs, anise, and warm baking spices.

On the palate, the wine explodes with a symphony of intricately woven flavours. Ripe dark cherries and juicy cranberries dance alongside cocoa and baking spices, creating a tapestry of richness and depth. The supple texture caresses the tongue, leading to a lengthy finish that lingers with smooth, velvety elegance.

More than just a delicious beverage, the Rutherford Hill Cabernet Sauvignon embodies the meticulous dedication and rich history of its origin. Nestled on a picturesque hill overlooking the Napa Valley Rutherford Bench, the winery has long embraced tradition, crafting legendary wines that pay homage to the region's unique terroir. Founded in 1972, Rutherford Hill recognized the valley's potential to rival the renowned Pomerol region, particularly suited for exceptional Merlot.

In 1996, the Terlato family, renowned for their unwavering commitment to quality over quantity, acquired the winery. Their pursuit of excellence began with a comprehensive review, leading to significant enhancements in the wine portfolio, further amplifying character and complexity. Today, John and Bill Terlato, carrying on the legacy of their father Antony, collaborate with skilled winemakers to continuously elevate the Rutherford Hill experience.

Unwavering commitment to quality permeates every aspect of the winemaking process. The state-of-the-art facility, built in 2000, features 24 fermentation tanks ranging from 1500 to 6000 gallons, ensuring optimal conditions for each individual batch. Dedicated temperature control and press capabilities allow for meticulous control, while a skilled harvest crew ensures only the finest grapes find their way into the final blend.

Rutherford Hill's dedication extends to creating the ideal environment for wine ageing. With investments in temperature-controlled caves and advanced pallet stacking systems, American and French oak barrels rest patiently, their contents maturing under meticulously controlled humidity levels. This meticulous approach minimises wine evaporation, resulting in wines with lower alcohol concentration and a focus on pure flavour expression.

The Rutherford Hill Cabernet Sauvignon is a testament to this unwavering dedication to quality. This exceptional wine is the perfect companion to rich, hearty dishes like grilled steaks, roasted lamb, or braised beef, making it a cornerstone of any memorable dining experience.

Indulge in the captivating complexity and rich history of Napa Valley with every sip of the Rutherford Hill Cabernet Sauvignon. Order your bottle today and embark on a sensory journey you won't soon forget.
