classic blackberry and black cherry aromas laced with chocolate, caramel and Herbes de Provence.


These same ripe fruit notes are at the core of the wine’s young flavors, accompanied by hints of loamy earth, olive tapenade and sweet oak which add to the layered, complex profile. Richly structured with fine-grained tannins, the 2011 Rutherford Reserve is a classic representation of this spectacular Napa sub-appellation.
