One should always buy a four pack. That way, one is always prepared for one's company to arrive. Unless one's friends are sick of the way one talks.

Grape juice. Grape skins. One would think that when they meet, the two of them would just be bored. After all, one knows they spend so much of their life together, right? And yet, when the folks of Rutherford Hill let them meet, the brief collision produces a pretty red color that catches one's eye and makes one think "One really could enjoy a wine like that, couldn't one?"

So one better get off one's duff and make a purchase here, because otherwise, one isn't going to get to enjoy the aroma of strawberries and plums, nor will one get to enjoy the full-body and bright acidity.

One would get to enjoy a long whine, however, when one has a little pity party for one's self in which one has nothing to serve but water because one took too long. Does that sound like something one would enjoy? No?

Well, then. CLICK THE FREAKIN' BUTTON, JERKFACE. But we mean that in the MOST refined and civilized way.

Features

In that vintage and in each vintage that followed they have relied on their beloved Merlot grapes as the source varietal. Allowing very brief contact between grape juice and grapes skins is the trick to creating the pretty color. Rosé wines are naturally food-friendly, refreshing and approachable. Rosé for Rutherford Hill is required for happy and stylish spring and summer entertaining. They are proud to offer Rutherford Hill’s lovely interpretation to the growing fan-base. Combine their Rosé with good friends, sunshine, short sleeves, porch-sitting and or poolside lounging and enjoy the guaranteed fun.

Winery Details

Rutherford Hill Winery

Founded:
1972
Owner:
The Terlato Wine Group
Location:
Napa Valley, CA
Founded in 1972, Rutherford Hill Winery is a pioneer in the development of California Merlot. The grape growers who founded Rutherford Hill carefully studied the geography of the region and capitalized on climate and soil conditions that resembled those of Pomerol, the small but distinctive Merlot-growing region of Bordeaux. What a promising discovery that was - one that has borne plenty of fruit - specifically, the lush, purple-black grapes that have contributed so much to Rutherford Hill's success. Today, Merlot remains the flagship wine of the company with 75 percent of Rutherford Hill's production dedicated to this varietal, one of the leading Merlots of Napa Valley.
 
When the Terlato family of the Terlato Wine Group (TWG), Lake Bluff, Illinois, purchased the winery in 1996, they immediately began to apply their guiding principle: Quality is a way of life. The pursuit of excellence began with a comprehensive review of all aspects of the facility that resulted in significant enhancements. TWG Chairman Anthony Terlato works with Rutherford Hill winemakers to tackle the challenges of consistently improving the wine, vintage after vintage.
