The makers of Rutherford Ranch have been growing premium wine grapes for the past fifty years. They've explored and cultivated some of California's finest vineyards in outstanding appellations, particularly Napa Valley. The name of this red blend is a reference to Napa Valley's unique geography, ideally positioned between two mountain ranges to the east and to the west: the Vaca and the Mayacamas. Within the valley, grape character and flavor are unique expressions of the diverse soil types and microclimates. Lots are hand selected from the rich array of outstanding fruit that this world-renowned wine growing region is famous for. Merlot, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah are all fermented separately aged in French oak and blended for a Napa red that shows aromatic spices coupled with black cherry aromas, alongside fresh raspberry and dark chocolate flavors. Ripe tannins lead to a rich mouthfeel and the flavors linger on a long finish.
