The Rutherford Wine Tasting 8/12/16

Ever since Robert Parker blew the lid off by pronouncing Rutherford’s Rhiannon Blend the best buy around, the spotlight has been shining brightly on Rutherford Wine Co. Their Cabernet has been so hot, they’re increasing the price by $6 bottle Sept 1st!  Which prompted us to get them down for a tasting, and to give you the opportunity to scoop some up at the current price.

Darren Pace will be down from the winery Friday evening to serve up their wines, and discuss their meteoric rise in popularity.
