We start this week’s show at the Rutherford Hill winery in the Napa Valley. While most of Napa’s wineries have focused on Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford Hill has turned its attention to another of the Bordeaux classics, Merlot. Getting the Merlot from some of Napa’s best vineyards, Rutherford Hill makes some of Napa’s tastiest Merlot. And, speaking of taste treats, how about some walnuts with your wine? We’ll crack the shell on these California treats, showing you how their grown, harvested, processed, and of course, used in great recipes from appetizers, to entrees, to desserts. Like the title says, Merlot and walnuts, it’s a great combination!
