Top 7 Merlot From $15-$20

3. Rutherford Ranch Merlot (2008)

« Prev Next » 3 of 7
Previously available for $18.60
A bit flat and nutty on the nose with herbal, dried grass base notes that add an attractive dimension to the earthy persimmon and red fruit aromas. This is really well balanced in a fresh style that highlights the supple tannins of Merlot. Excellent, juicy acidity keeps this fresh and lively in the mouth. There's a touch of under-ripeness here that shows up as a base of herbal, earthy flavors, but that just adds complexity to the core of blackberry fruit. There’s a nice touch of oak adding supporting spice notes and an overlay of vanilla. This leads to a moderately long, slightly peppery and savory finish that ends on a candied cranberry note. Pretty solid and an easy to drink offering. 89pts
