Rush Wines seeks to promote wine awareness in Alabama by bringing some of the world’s finest wines to its local markets, as well as by introducing consumers to the people behind the wines. The company is also involved in the production of its own private-label series of wines, which embodies our focus on higher-quality, handcrafted wines made by small-scale, family-owned wineries.

Founded by Alabama native Rush Garner in 2005, the Rush Cellars project began with the release of 728 cases of cabernet sauvignon from California to the Alabama market. Today, some 40,000 cases later, Birmingham resident Rush Garner has created an array of additional wines to compliment his flagship Cabernet.

The Rush Cellars portfolio now comprises a Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Sparkling, Pinot Grigio, and a red blend called the Ol’ Vine Red.

𝐓𝐞𝐫𝐫𝐞 𝐑𝐨𝐮𝐠𝐞 “𝐇𝐢𝐠𝐡 𝐒𝐥𝐨𝐩𝐞𝐬” 𝐒𝐲𝐫𝐚𝐡, 𝐒𝐢𝐞𝐫𝐫𝐚 𝐅𝐨𝐨𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐥𝐥𝐬 𝟐𝟎𝟏𝟔 – 98 points, Wine EnthusiastOur "High Slopes" Syrah is made from vineyard sites that are near or exceed the 3,000 foot elevation in the rocky Sierra Foothills. These more extreme, cool sites highlight the racy finesse and subtle aromatics of the grape, while still retaining some of the smoky, spicy qualities of Syrah that make it so enjoyable. We focus on the terroir-oriented attributes of these sites for this special limited bottling.Terre Rouge and Easton Wines ... See MoreSee Less

𝐄𝐚𝐬𝐭𝐨𝐧 “𝐎𝐥𝐝 𝐕𝐢𝐧𝐞 - 𝐑𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐥𝐝𝐢” 𝐙𝐢𝐧𝐟𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐥, 𝐅𝐢𝐝𝐝𝐥𝐞𝐭𝐨𝐰𝐧 𝐕𝐢𝐧𝐞𝐲𝐚𝐫𝐝 𝟐𝟎𝟏𝟓 – 94 points, Wine Enthusiast Hardly a run-of-the-mill wine, this potent liquid exudes tobacco and flint aromas that join with wood smoke, cocoa and blackberry flavors to make it dramatic and spicy. Full body and firm tannins build great structure to pair with indulgent proteins and give it the stuffing to age.Terre Rouge and Easton Wines ... See MoreSee Less

𝐓𝐞𝐫𝐫𝐞 𝐑𝐨𝐮𝐠𝐞 “𝐋𝐞𝐬 𝐂𝐨̂𝐭𝐞𝐬 𝐝𝐞 𝐥'𝐎𝐮𝐞𝐬𝐭” 𝐒𝐲𝐫𝐚𝐡, 𝐂𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐧𝐢𝐚 𝟐𝟎𝟏𝟕 Medium garnet in the glass, this wine smells of bloody steak, dried flowers and cassis. In the mouth, cassis and black cherry have a wonderful deep earthy backbone and excellent acidity. Savory notes of herbs emerge on the finish that seems to ooze out of the felt-like tannins that coat the mouth.Terre Rouge and Easton Wines ... See MoreSee Less

𝐄𝐚𝐬𝐭𝐨𝐧 𝐙𝐢𝐧𝐟𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐞𝐥, 𝐀𝐦𝐚𝐝𝐨𝐫 𝐂𝐨𝐮𝐧𝐭𝐲 𝟐𝟎𝟏𝟔 – 91 Points, Wine EnthusiastSmooth and creamy yet firm enough for good grip, this is a big but well-balanced wine that offers plenty of ripe berries and plums along with hints of black pepper and sage. Moderate tannins seem to build on the palate and add a good bite to the finish. Terre Rouge and Easton Wines ... See MoreSee Less
