Rutherford Ranch’s 2005 Rhiannon Red Wine is the second vintage of this Bordeaux-style wine and comes from select vineyards located throughout the Napa Valley. The goddess Rhiannon is a figure of power and mystery in the Zaninovich family’s Welsh heritage and is associated with the contrasting characteristics of change and steadfastness – an interesting parallel to the winemaking tradition of crafting distinctive varietal blends.

A delicious marriage of Napa Valley red varietal fruit, the 2005 Rhiannon has garnered an exceptional response from the wine industry press. Vibrant ruby red in color, this luscious red wine features aromas of cassis, Bing cherry, black raspberry and vanilla bean on the nose intertwined with scents of dark chocolate and espresso bean. Succulent flavors of cassis, cranberry and plum marry with the soft caramel and rich tannins for an elegant finish.
