Winemaker's Notes:

Ruby red in color. Concentrated aromas of dark fruit (blackcurrant, blackberries) and a hint of bakers chocolate. Intricate flavor intensity, with full body. Bright flavors of dark cherry, plum and cassis, with a pleasant, persistent finish. Lush texture, with velvety tannins.
My Notes:

About Rutherford Hill Winery:

Nestled high in the Eastern Hills, Rutherford Hill Winery commands a spectacular view overlooking the Rutherford bench of Napa Valley. It is from a handful of the most select Napa vineyards that Rutherford Hill continues its tradition of crafting legendary wines. In 1976, while the rest of the world was just beginning to take notice of Napa Valley, the founders of Rutherford Hill recognized a unique opportunity. They believed that the climate and soil of the valley, similar to Pomerol, were well suited to Merlot and were among the first to pioneer what has become Napa's premier varietal. Today, this tradition of quality continues, expressed by wines of great complexity and character.
