  • 1 bottle of Napa Valley wine

  • 1 copy of Wine Country Women of Napa Valley, featuring Sequoia Grove's winemaker, Molly Hill

The successful bidder will enjoy a beautifully etched and painted nine-liter bottle of Sequoia Grove Winery 2014 Rutherford Bench Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, along with a hardbound copy of Wine Country Women of Napa Valley featuring winemaker Molly Hill.

This collectible and rare bottle (only five produced) features an intricately etched portrait of the historic tasting barn and the majestic Sequoia trees that tower over the Rutherford estate. Each detail is meticulously hand-painted to provide a stunning portrayal of Sequoia Grove Winery.

The 2014 Rutherford Bench Reserve is a blend of 82 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 9 percent Cabernet Franc, 6 percent Merlot and 3 percent Petit Verdot, aged 22 months in French oak. Aromas of black licorice, peppercorn, dark fruit and leather lead to secondary aromas of vanilla and cinnamon. On the palate, this wine shows notes of red cherry, vanilla, baking spice and cigar box, all pulled together by the velvety structure that makes this wine uniquely Rutherford. This is a stunning example of Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon from a near-perfect vintage.

Also included is the recently-released book Wine Country Women of Napa Valley featuring profiles of prominent women winemakers in Napa Valley, including Sequoia Grove’s very own Molly Hill.

Molly has been with Sequoia Grove Winery since 2003 and continues to produce wines with balance, structure and longevity. This substantial book is a must-have for your wine library and features in-depth stories along with beautiful color photography from Napa Valley.
