Nice chocolate aroma in the neck - tight tannins. Needs to open up about a hour before drinking, and still needs years of aging. Read more
This is a light wine; I picked it up before watching Interiors. I tasted it with Sterling and decided to stick with the later for the movie. Read more
Good dry Merlot - prefer 2004 over 2006. Read more

External Reviews for Rutherford Hill
Wine Tasting NotesBrilliant ruby hue. Cranberry, strawberry, honeysuckle and vanilla. Brisk and refreshing, reminiscent of fresh strawberries, raspberries and plums. This vintage is drinking beautifully right now and is the perfect apertif wine!
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.
The Wine NEws ReviewRated 90Cedary scents of blackberry, cherry soda, coffee bean and black tea. Concentrated, brambly flavors of mixed berries, cherry and pencil shavings. Lingering finish heightened by mocha notes.Wine Tasting NotesDark cherries, rich chocolate and a hint of oaky sweetness abound in this merlot. For anyone who doesnt know this grape, a glass could be a mind-altering event. A stellar example of why Rutherford Hill is King of the Merlot world. Sufficient easy charms to work on its own as an aperitif; enough going on to complement a long list of edibles. More uses than a Swiss Army knife and much easier to operate. Enjoy!
