WS 89 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - Soft and sleek, with appealing aromas of cherry and mocha that lead to bright flavors of tart red currant, sage and spice. Winemakers Notes - Rutherford Hill's Merlot is an elegant, refined blend of classic Bordeaux varietals that create its rich aroma and flavor. The winery is perched high atop a hill overlooking Napa Valley, where the grapes are nurtured by deep volcanic soil and longer afternoon sun. An abundance of cherry fruit flavors are backed by a rich, balanced structure for an intensely complex Merlot. Silky, full-flavored, firm, and built for today's enjoyment with smooth tannins and lush layers of flavor.
