Rutherford's Alpha Omega winery released its first wines in July 2006, but its winemakers are hardly neophytes. Winemaker Jean Hoefliger has made wines at Bordeaux's Château Lynch-Bages and Château Carbonnieux and worked, most recently, as winemaker for Newton Vineyard, before joining Alpha Omega. He is assisted by renowned consulting winemaker Michel Rolland. The 2004 Napa Cab is powerful, but with feminine elegance. The nose displays dark berries, black cherry and blackberry, mingling with oak spice and lavender with a touch of almond. On the palate the wine is velvety smooth, with balanced acidity, sweet raspberry fruit and blueberries with fresh herbs d' Provence on the finish. Recently named a winery to watch by the Wine Enthusiast.
