Well-balanced aromas of freshly sawn wood, vanilla, crushed berries and juniper give this a woodsy nose. This has the rich attack and ultra smooth feel that many people look for in Merlot. The wood is well integrated on the palate adding only chocolate and mocha notes to the rich black plum fruit. There’s a bit of spice on the back end and into the finish, which is on the shorter side. Fruity and easy drinking 88pts

Rich and fruity nose of strawberry, violets and candied fruits. Warm fruits flavors in the mouth, even a little toffee. This is a very fruity wine, almost chewy on the finish with hints of licorice. Nice.

Dubbed “One of the Greatest U.S. Merlot Producers” by Wine Enthusiast Magazine, Rutherford Hill has been making award winning Merlot for three decades. This 2005 is a stunning example of what this grape can achieve in the rarified soils of Napa Valley. A recent review read “Rutherford Hill made their name with Merlot, and this bottling shows they’re still pretty good at it. Dry and tannic, it shows delicious flavors of blackberries, red currants, mocha and licorice, with an exotic streak of grilled beef.”

Flavors of dark cherries and chocolate abound in this soft and fleshy, balanced Merlot. The finish is silky and lingering with a hint of vanilla, cinnamon and tobacco.
