Edwardian Ball Wine - Rutherford's Wonder, 2014 Alexander Valley Malbec
The first of the Edwardian Ball series, a bold and juicy 2013 Malbec from a hillside vineyard in the Alexander Valley. "Rutherford's Wonder" is our debut wine of the Edwardian Ball collection, an ongoing series of small-lot handcrafted wines brought to you by a collaboration of Spicy Vines and the Edwardian Ball. Each wine in this collection will showcase a story surrounding a whimsical character along his or her journey to the ball, a journey that all begins with Rutherford!
All travels share notions of journey and destination, each of which holds greater weight in revolving consideration.
And with that, the regal Rutherford contemplated (all at once and less of a sudden) a place of grandeur, elegance, and celebration. Furious scribbles assuaged his temptation, a paradox of it's own. “So it shall be!” and the door opened…
So please, enjoy this first offering from The Edwardian Ball. Pour a glass and contemplate that which is laid out before you, cellared and bottled by our compatriots at Flagship Cellars and brought to us by our friends at Spicy Vines.
