The Wine Alley USD 13.99 750ml

Round Hill Merlot 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Leafy, green herby, green tomato and sawdust on the nose. This is a touch sweet on entry and across the palate but the sugar gives this some volume in the mouth, and balances the acids and slightly rough tannins. Rather neutral on the palate with green tomato and slight wood tones. Drying on the finish. This is a little coarse and rustic, and tastes little like Merlot but is an acceptable table wine that I would consider for hot dogs and hamburgers. 83pts

Round Hill Vineyards & Cellars:
Rutherford Wine Company is family owned and managed with a portfolio of wines representing the rich diversity of California’s outstanding appellations. Uncompromising and ecologically far-sighted viticulture is an ethical imperative for us. Though more labor intensive than prevalent commercial winegrowing methods, our efforts are rewarded with fruit rich in flavor and character. And great fruit is a prerequisite for making great wine.

Charred wood and potpourri aromas frame a bright palate with a hint of sweetness, bunches of raspberries and cherries, and a slightly fungal and syrupy finish.

Very unobjectionable, a bit of sweetness with soft tannins and a pleasant bit of wood and chocolate. Fulfilling on a basic level.

a little smokey and earthiness on the nose, a dark cherry wood with more raspberry and blackberry fruit components on the palate, a round, thick fruit finish
