Rutherford Ranch Merlot 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Merlot Lovers Duo The magic of Rutherford Hill Merlot is captured in this classic duo featuring the 2003 and 2004 vintages. This gift set is sure to please the Merlot lover on your holiday list. 2003 Merlot Notes: Dark 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.. 2004 Merlot Notes: A stellar example of why Rutherford Hill is king of the Merlot world, the 2004 vintage is rich with aromas of berries and cocoa. 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. Deliciou alone, as an aperitif, as well as when paired with hearty foods like roasts, lamb and steak.

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.
