Carr wines are a standby for Napa lovers, and in the standout 2012 vintage, they’re unbeatable! Constructed my the one and only 100 point winemaker Aaron Pott!

The ‘12 Rutherford red is a traditional Merlot-Cab blend, filled with flavors of ripe plum, blackberry, and Rutherford’s signature dusty earth. With time candied flavors of chocolate-covered coffee beans, caramel, toffee, and black currant emerge, and make this bottle one we can’t put down. In short, it’s easy to see why Rutherford is known for making Napa’s best!  $29.99 is the BEST price ever offered on this wine, and it’s exclusively on Vivino--Don’t Wait, this wine won’t last! 

About the wine

Joseph Carr, the sommelier gone Napa phenom, has been making fantastic wine since his label’s debut in 2005 and now with winemaker Aaron Pott at the helm, these wines are continuing to top the charts!

The 2012 vintage was a winemaker’s dream--sunny skies and no rain meant perfect ripening conditions, yielding jice that proves why Napa reds rule the wine world. Dense and dark, ‘12 Carr is a joy to drink, especially if you’ve got time to watch this inky beauty evolve in the glass. Candied fruit, cocoa, and spice make up the nose now, but this bottle will easily cellar well for the next decade. A cellar-must have, don’t wait on this taste of Rutherford’s best!

"Really enjoyed this one more so then any other Joseph Carr wines. - Thrill

"Delicious. Perfect!" - Theresa K.

95-97 pts - Chris Stanley, Certified Sommelier

"The 2012 Carr Rutherford Red, is another star-studded production from the Dylan's Ghost dynamic duo 'Aaron Pott/Joe Carr' team. Faust ($60), Palmaz ($100+), and the Silverado GEO ($75+) come to mind as contenders when comparing this brilliant Carr bottling. Dark brambly fruits, luscious wild cherry, dark chocolate, coffee, nutmeg, new oak w/ some soft barrell spice. Off-dry and well-balanced with long oaked finish. Impressive...should cellar for decades."

95 pts - Alex Casella, WSET Advanced 

"Bold and fresh looking purple color with an intoxicating nose of dark blackberry, red and black currants, plenty of ground spice, slight herbal undertones and umami. Lots of layers of dense tannin and balanced acidity to match with food or just imbibe on it's own. This will hold well the next 5-7 years without a doubt and a tremendous value for Napa Valley Cabernet. I highly recommend picking up a case and pairing with Fall Stews and Rib-Eye Roast."

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:

  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.

Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.

If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.

You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.

Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.
