2003 Rutherford Hill Cabernet

     We opened a bottle of the 2003 Rutherford Hill Cabernet to drink after dinner the other evening. We had purchased a few bottles of this a while back for approximately $25 a bottle. In the glass, the wine was a deep black ruby color. It had medium intense aromas of sweet black cherry, plum and cedar. It had medium+ smooth tannins, acidity and alcohol (13.5% abv) with flavors of mixed berries and cherries and a touch of cocoa with a long finish.
     A very good bottle at a reasonable price!
