Winemaker's Notes

Rutherford Ranch 2005 Napa Valley Merlot has bright, inviting aromas of cranberry, black currant and succulent blueberry wrapped around rich, dark chocolate and vanilla. This medium-body wine opens with fresh blackberry and cranberry laced with flavors of creamy mocha and dried cherry. Abundant, mouthwatering flavors combined with soft, supple tannins lead to a long, satisfying finish.

Food Pairings: It is love at first sip when you serve this Merlot with grilled lamb skewers, roasted pork loin, beef stew or wild game.
