Winemaker's Notes

Blend: 98% Merlot, 2% Zinfandel

Fast, furious and exciting, the 2004 harvest brought grape clusters with small berries and intense flavors producing rich color concentration and complexity.

Medium-bodied, Rutherford Ranch 2004 Merlot has soft, supple tannins with a long, satisfying finish. Dried cherry, blueberry and rich, dark chocolate intertwine for soft, lush aromas.

Able to handle anything from the grill, but this wine is absolutely at its best when served with roasted rack of lamb. Whip up a fresh pasta dish or simmer a beef stew to enjoy the concentrated fruit flavors of this Merlot.
