2012 ESTATE RUTHERFORD REDRutherford Red

The 2012 Wm. Harrison Estate Rutherford Red is a Meritage blend comprised of the five Bordeaux varietals. The best of our three Cabernet Sauvignon blocks makes the base of this wine, and is blended with our Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and famed Cabernet Franc. Aged in forty percent new French oak, only the finest barrel selections of these varietals were chosen for this blend. Aromas begin with dark syrupy blueberry and boysenberry and lead to a rich fudge character derived from new French oak. Over time in the glass, it opens to floral tones of lavender and sweet sarsaparilla. The palate structure of this wine is large and rich, accompanied by sweet, dark fruit flavors. Tannins are large and fine grit, a notable characteristic of our Rutherford estate vineyard. This blend is ready for immediate consumption, but will evolve nicely with long term aging.

This wine’s aroma is heavily cherry oriented with sprinklings of red and black currant, bay leaf and strawberry preserve. Flavors on the palate are of dried cherry, fruit leather, and thistle. The strong structure is very apparent on the front palate and moves to a textured mid and back palate, with a long finish. Our estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a model of clone 7 Cabernet Sauvignon’s potential in the Rutherford District of the Napa Valley.
