Notes from the Winemaker:
â€œRutherford Redâ€ is our flagship Meritage blend, comprised of the winemakerâ€™s favorite barrels of the five Bordeaux varieties grown on the Estate. With the best lots of Cabernet Sauvignon as the foundation, he adds precise volumes of Petit Verdot, Malbec, Merlot, and our famous Cabernet Franc.
This wine is meant to be the best possible expression of the Harrisonâ€™s home vineyard every vintage. Aromas begin with ripe blackberry and boysenberry, and lead to a dark chocolate character derived from new French oak. On the palate, its texture is bold and rich, accompanied by sweet, dark fruit flavors and fine-grained tannins, a notable characteristic of the Rutherford appellation.
