Cabernet Sauvignon
Rutherford

10 cases produced

Highlights

  • Your wine is a reflection of what we love about Napa Valley: a beautifully balanced Cabernet Sauvignon
  • 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot: opulent fruit characters with supple tannins and an exquisite finish
  • 20 months in French oak will provide a beautiful tannin profile that is bursting with flavors
  • A late harvest (Oct. 23) allowed for a greater accumulation of flavor and complexity

It has been said that the Rutherford nested appellation is the birthplace of some of the best Cabernet Sauvignon in Napa Valley and we agree. The fruit is grown on our 10-acre estate vineyard, which has an extremely unique terroir. Our rocky soil and steep west/southwest facing slope offers a perfect environment to create Cabernet Sauvignon with an intensity and structure emblematic of the famous Rutherford nested appellation. This is a beautifully balanced Cabernet Sauvignon that reveals opulent fruit characters, supple tannins and an exquisite finish.

Marisa Taylor

Winemaker, Rutherford Hill Winery

Winemaker, Marisa Taylor

Growing up among the vineyards of Santa Rosa in Sonoma County, I guess perhaps I was destined to find a career in winemaking. At a young age, I recall visits to the vineyards to watch my godfather, a vineyard manager, work with the vines. And like most people who grow up in wine country, wine was a typical fixture at my family's dinner table. I developed a deep appreciation for the process of taking the tender grapes from vine to the glass, generating the spark of what would become my professional calling

Country born: United States

Education: Marisa graduated from the University of California, Davis, first with a B.S. in Chemistry and then an M.S. in Food Science-Enology.

Years in the wine industry: 10-15 years

Winemaking Philosophy:
What is in the glass should reflect what is in the vineyards. My desire is to to help the grapes express themselves in the best possible way.
