The WW this week is one that stood out from the rest for a number of reasons. First it was ***. Yes we know that WW wines should be ****. This was a special occasion as rack of lamb was the meal that needed a pairing. Also there are a vast number of *** wines in the wine fridge that someone needs to drink so why not. The special bottle this week was from Rutherford Hill in Napa Valley.
The 2009 Rutherford Hill Syrah was outstanding. This wine was a great representation of one of our favorite varietals with good structure wonderful dark fruit nose and flavor with a soft long finish. We do normally try to have less expensive wines for the at home dinners, but with a rack of lamb going on the table something of this quality was in order, and at an 8 and *** this turned out to be the perfect choice. A very lovely wine that would be more a home going out to dinner.
When you are in Napa, go on over to the Silverado Trail and visit Rutherford Hill, check out all their offerings and tell em we sent you!
Happy Tasting Adventures,
