Rutherford Hill's 2007 Merlot is an elegant, refined blend of classic Bordeaux varietals that create its rich aroma and flavor. An abundance of cherry 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.
"A fine Merlot from a winery with a very long track record of success with this difficult variety. The wine is rich and almost sweet in blackberries and cherries, yet it finishes dry in a flourish of smooth tannins. Drink now.
"Offers good focus and structure, with black cherry and toasty oak aromas leading to plum, dried herb and spice notes. Drink now through 2015. 34,929 cases made. "
