Rutherford Hill 2009 Barrel Select Red, Napa Valley
Here's a wine you're not going to want to miss. This Barrel Select Bordeaux style blend from Napa Valley legend Rutherford Hill, has been slow-aging in the their underground caves. So right now this 5 year old is soft as silk and seductively complex. A blend of the varietals that Rutherford Hill is famous for, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, all from their prime Napa Valley vineyards. The wine was blended and then aged 21 months in 100% French oak barrels. The pedigree alone should put this in the super premium price category but lucky for all of us, it's a healthy cut below that and an amazing value.

    Comments about Rutherford Hill 2009 Barrel Select Red, Napa Valley:

    it started out a little too tannic for me but opened up and had much better balance after about 30/40 minutes. definitely would decant for awhile if you have the time, really makes an appreciable difference. a little more fruit forward than i would have imagined probably as a result of the Syrah present but the barrel aging kept it nicely balanced.

      Comments about Rutherford Hill 2009 Barrel Select Red, Napa Valley:

      This is the second vintage in a row this wine has impressed, especially in its price range. Lots of classic Napa Cab aromas of cassis, black cherry and cola with nice earthy and meaty notes coming from the Syrah. It is elegant on the palate with a dry and pleasant finish. Could use a bit of time to open up, but a great value for sure.

            I enjoyed this wine. I have bought it on two separate occasions and the quality was terrific both times. It is an excellent red wine. Very smooth and a nice finish.

                A:

                Hi John -- This is a bold, full bodied, dry red wine. It has nice fruit flavors but it is not sweet. If you're looking for something sweet I'd recommend a Port or a lovely Moscato
