External Reviews for Rutherford Hill Merlot Reserve
Rutherford Hills Merlot is an elegant, refined blend of classic Bordeaux varietals that create its rich aroma and flavor. An abundance of cherry and plum fruit flavors are backed by a rich, balanced structure for an intensely complex Merlot. Silky, full-flavored, firm, and built for todays enjoyment with smooth tannins and lush layers of flavor. Rutherford Hill Website
Aromas of ripe red currant, earth, leather and exotic spices converge on the palate, where they turn austere. Yet there's enough ripe fruit to hold your interest. Drink now through 2010. 150 cases made.
Color: GarnetAroma: Intense aromas of raspberry and plum with a hint of dried cherries.Taste: Exceptional mouthfeel, with concentrated flavors of red fruit. Plush tannins confer the wine a rich finish; with a hint of cocoa, caramel, and dry currants. - Winery
Everything that Merlot can and should be; dense blackberries and cherries, rich, silky, spicy, and supple from start to lingering finish. The dense core of fruit will radiate concentrated fruit flavors for more than a decade, yet the supple tannins and balance make it unlikely youGll be able to keep from drinking it before then. This wine is so delicious that the best description is, GWow!G
