Rutherford, Napa Valley

S.R. Tonella Cellars

Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

With family roots to BV over decades of winemaking, the style shows in this wine. A black fruit dominant wine. The finish on this wine makes SURE you don't miss the Rutherford dust, as it is ABUNDANT. For someone wanting to learn about Classic Napa and, further, classic Rutherford wine, **THIS** is the wine to serve. This wine is right on par with Wm. Harrison for Rutherford gem deluxe. And crafted in the nuclear style. This one can hold for 20 years easily. Well done Raymond and Steve. Fantstic Napa cab. — 12 days ago

Hall Wines

Exzellenz Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Exzellenz by Hall Wines cabernet sauvignon 2016! Must decant for 30 min for it to open up. Cold Cherry pie on the nose, dark berries and chocolate on the beginning followed by an oak and spice finish. It is a very dry wine on the finish as well. It is also 16.1%!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I sip of this wine followed by five sips of water should work! It also has a buttery ending.

Monsieur Ètain Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Very plush and open. A hammy burst of ripe blackcurrant fruit. A little lacking in definition but pleasant — 3 days ago

It’s interesting and humbling to notice your own tastes change wildly. I was so into Hall 6 years ago, and now, ehh, not so much. Despite this being their premier, or at least priciest and “excellenz” bottle. If ripe cali cab is your jam, then this is quite the jam you’re seeking. Drinking great right now, if you’re into this sorta thing. — 17 days ago

@Aaron Rankin I totally get you regarding palate evolution.


Rutherford Red Bordeaux Blend 2001


2001 Sloan CS. Post-Thanksgiving dinner w McC at Jar. Decanted as we sat and let it air in glass for ~45 mins before drinking. Massive wine. Calmed down a lot over the next 30-40 mins but could have decanted it hours earlier. Drank this in comp to 2007 Hundred Acre. I preferred this over the HA. — 10 days ago

McGah Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Greg Ballington

Medium greenish yellow. Fresh and vibrant nose with layers of melon, honeysuckle, apricot, Asian pear and a bit of citrus. Medium acidity (6.5/10) with a medium minus body. Clean palate with a bit of lemon, grapefruit and wet rocks. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2023.

Great pairing with The Feed and dumplings.

I found this to be his most locked up cab from that vintage. Typical Mountain structure.

@Shay A i wish we would have decanted it several hours in advanced. We let it sit but never really had a chance to experience at his best.
