Five Critically Acclaimed Wines

This week, we are celebrating five new scores from Wine Enthusiast! These critics’ ratings provide a helpful guide to the delicious wines we offer here at Ruby Hill Winery. Of course, everyone has their go-to wines, but we hope this quick guide will give you confidence to explore phenomenal wines and varietals that are worth discovering!

93 points - 2020 Jewel Collection Petite Sirah

This wine is opulent with aromas of black currant, boysenberry and grilled jalapeño. The palate has flavors of blackberry, huckleberry, blood-orange zest and cardamom wrapped around vanilla cream, dark chocolate and grippy tannins. Pair with short ribs. — Tonya Pitts

A truly lustrous and rich varietal, this wine is a stunner, vintage after vintage. Our terroir is particularly well-suited to growing fantastic Petite Sirah fruit, and we spare no expense when it comes to the winemaking techniques applied to our Jewel Collection series. Enjoy this saturated and elegant wine today!

92 points - 2021 Jewel Collection Petit Verdot

This wine is dense, concentrated with aromas of spiced blackberry, boysenberry, florals and cloves. The midpalate has flavors of blueberry, cardamom spice and grilled blood-orange zest intertwined with sedimentary rock, dried tobacco leaf, spicy chocolate and a dry, mouthwatering finish. Pair with marinated tri-tip. — Tonya Pitts

Another standout from our Jewel Collection, this distinctive varietal is deserving of attention and acclaim. A full-bodied classic Bordeaux grape, it is rare to find Petit Verdot bottled on its own, but we are proud to shine a spotlight on this varietal. In addition to this score from Wine Enthusiast, this wine won Double Gold in the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. 

91 points and “Best Buy” - 2021 Grapeful Red

This wine is opulent with aromas of blackberry pie, clove, black licorice and potpourri. The palate offers blackberry, cinnamon, vanilla cream and orange blossom honey that slip into tobacco leaf, spicy chocolate and a dry, silky finish. Pair with sausage pizza. — Tonya Pitts

Our classic Grapeful Red is a playful and pleasing red blend you can always rely on. This vintage is particularly excellent, and at $19 per bottle, it has earned the “Best Buy” designation from Wine Enthusiast. Embrace the tie-dye and let the good wine flow!

90 points - 2020 Sangiovese

This wine is supple, fresh with aromas of Bing cherry, raspberry, dried florals and earth. The midpalate has flavors of cranberry, red licorice and chicory rounded out with bittersweet chocolate and a dry finish. Pair with pork loin. — Tonya Pitts

Faithful to its roots as an everyday-drinking Italian varietal, this keen and bright Sangiovese pairs with all of your favorite weeknight dinners. As a delicious bonus, it brings high-quality aromas and flavors so you can enjoy the sense of a fine wine without breaking the bank. 

90 points - 2021 Peacock Patch Zinfandel

This wine is juicy, lively with aromas of blackberry, mulberry and cinnamon-vanilla spice. The palate offers black cherry, orange marmalade, star anise and black-tea leaf wrapped around bittersweet chocolate shavings and a dry finish. Pair with meat loaf. — Tonya Pitts

A true emblem of Ruby Hill Winery, our Peacock Patch Zin celebrates the vineyard ecosystem, including our ostentatious avian friends, the peacocks. Ideal for pairing and gifting alike, this beautiful wine is calling for you!

We hope you’ll visit the tasting room soon to enjoy these remarkable wines. Perhaps you will even find a new favorite!
