Rutherford Grill Wine List Review

Rutherford Grill Wine List Review

Given that spring has arrived, more people are heading to the Napa Valley for a weekend getaway. Therefore, we thought it was time to release our wine list review of the Rutherford Grill. The Hillstone Group owns the Rutherford Grill and the Los Altos Grill. Barry Cothran oversees the wine programs at Hillstone’s restaurants and he does a fantastic job. PRICING IS ONLY $5 TO $25 OVER RETAIL. If you are looking for a restaurant with a casual atmosphere, good food and a stellar wine list that won’t break the bank, then check out the Rutherford Grill.

The list at the Rutherford Grill frequently changes, but as of the release date of this review, it had the 2008 Larkmead, Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon on the list for $72. Fellow Wine Drinkers, it is nearly impossible to find wines from Larkmead at retailers or in restaurants because they sell-out all of their wines through their allocation list. If you have not visited Larkmead, then make it a point to do so the next time you are in the Napa Valley. This represents one of the top restaurant wine values on any list in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The list is comprised of 174 selections (Sparkling 6, White 64 and Red 104), and given the favorable pricing we are only going to recommend 35 to 40 wines.

Start your evening with the 2010 Round Pond, Rutherford, Sauvignon Blanc for $36 or the 2009 DuMol, Lia, Russian River, Viognier for $44, and follow it up with the 2007 Brewer Clifton, Santa Rita Hills, Pinot Noir for $56 or the 2008 Larkmead, Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon for $72.

As with all VinoServant reviews, you will see the price at the restaurant followed by the mark-up over retail (2007 Schramsberg, Brut Rose, North Coast | $48 | 1.4x | This translates into a retail price of $33).

Great Atmosphere

If you are looking for a reasonably affordable restaurant that still has that "FLASHY" feel, then look no further than to the Rutherford Grill. Great selection of beverages. Only down fall is the fact that if you are going to be drinking…
