RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
Editorial Reviews for Merlot
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
Beautiful cherry and leather flavors. Soft vanilla notes. Eucalyptus and mineral flavors in the mouth. Finishes on cherry and blackberry. Beautiful
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.

External Reviews for Merlot
Rutherford Hill Merlot 2005 and all other wine from Rutherford Hill are readily available to ship at discount prices. We carry many premium wine from across the world.
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.”
