Brick red in color. Aromas of cherry, chocolate, anise, soy, clove and cocoa. Round, smooth tannins, with flavors of cherries and plums and hints of anise, cocoa and clove.
Rutherford Hill's Merlot is an elegant, refined blend of classic Bordeaux varietals that create its rich aroma and flavor. The winery is perched high atop a hill overlooking Napa Valley, where the grapes are nurtured by deep volcanic soil and longer afternoon sun. An abundance of cherry and plum fruit flavors are backed by a rich, balanced structure for an intensely complex Merlot. Silky, full-flavored, firm, and built for today's enjoyment with smooth tannins and lush layers of flavor.
good now and still can use some cellaring. Will be better next year. Still love the wine and will reorder.
