Rutherford is in the northern half of Napa Valley between Oakville and St. Helena. With its more northern location - further away from San Pablo Bay - and narrower width, Rutherford is slightly warmer than Oakville and Stags Leap. The Rutherford area west of Highway 29 - stretching from the highway into the base of the Mayacamas Mountains - is commonly referred to as the “Rutherford Bench” and contributes to Rutherford’s reputation as a premiere grape growing area. Another Rutherford-coined term is “Rutherford Dust” used to describe the dusty, earthy flavors common in Rutherford wines. Rutherford red wines are typically rich, medium to full bodied, yet elegant, with black-currant, cedar, cassis, black-licorice, spice box, cherry, and earth flavors.
