The 2014 "Ruth" By Sean Larkin

On my trip to Napa last year Sean Larkin, Bruce Devlin and I spent the morning at Ballentine winery tasting through barrels from the 2014 vintage and eventually settling on two barrels of merlot to which we blended a small amount of petit verdot. This wine is loaded with rich notes of dark chocolate, roasted espresso, black berried fruit, spice and lush red cherries. The result is Ruth: a wine made to honor Mrs. Ruth Bassin, the late matriarch of MacArthur Beverages.

We only made 44 cases of this beautiful wine. We hope you will enjoy it and raise a glass to this wonderful woman.

-Andy Creemer
