External Reviews for Rutherford Hill Merlot Reserve
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!
