Acabado de salir al mercado, joven, frutoso. Compro siempre dos botellas, una para ahora o en 5 años y otra para 10 años.

Tasted the Rutherford against Freemark Abbey's sister wine from Napa (same vintage). I preferred the Napa (albeit, I prefer the left bank over the right bank Bordeaux's). The Rutherford had twice the Merlot over Napa.

Note: after an hour sitting, I've upgraded the Rutherford to a 9.0

Beautiful dustiness with slight dried fruits on the nose. Stewed red fruits and subtle tannins on the palate.

Excellent wine! I like their standard wines for value, but this 2012 Rutherford AVA is impressive. Cheers!

Lack cherry and dry oak with clove and tobacco, and a hint of unsweetened cocoa powder.

Dry & spicy initially. Let breath and it really balances out.

V12. Beatiful. Cedar and cherry nose. Black currant fruit. Long, tight, chalky leather and black pepper finish. Very nice steak wine.
