Reviews and Ratings

From Napa Valley, California, Rutherford Ranch 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from mostly Cab Sauv with a bit of Petit Verdot, Malbec, Petite Sirah and Merlot added to the blend. From a challenging vintage, but a lovely finesse on the palate with dark fruit, blackberry, cedar spice, savoury herbs and spicy flavours finishing with fresh acidity. Pair with grilled beef prime ribs. - Community Wine Reviews
