In honor of Cinco de Mayo the Rutherford Appellation Wineries will hold their spring passport event, a “Rutherford Passport to Fiesta,” on the weekend of May 5th and 6th. Eleven wineries will offer special tastings and comida to those who purchase a two-day passport for $75 or a Sunday-only passport for $60…Sawyer Cellars will be serving Napa chef Jonathan Bodnar’s Mole-Style Chile (click here for recipe). Chef’s dish will be paired with the Sawyer Cellars 2008 Estate Merlot. There is no mistaking the distinctive flavor profile of Rutherford wines. There’s something very special about the terroir that screams this is ”The Place” and “The Taste” of great wines.
