Ideally situated on the northern border of the Rutherford appellation, our Chicken Ranch Vineyard yields distinctive Merlot with the signature flavors of earth and dried herbs. Here, the grapes enjoy a constant, warm climate and a unique soil composition that imbue the grapes with the prized hallmark of “Rutherford Dust.” True to its origin, our elegant Chicken Ranch Merlot is deep in color with a nose touched by leather and sage, and showcases bright red fruit flavors, a subtle minerality and a long, plush finish.
