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 and plum 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.

Aroma: Cherry, chocolate, anise, soy, clove, cocoa
Flavor: Round, smooth tannins, with flavors of cherries and plums and hints of anise, cocoa and clove


"Rutherford Hill made their name with Merlot, and this bottling shows they’re still pretty good at it. Dry and tannic, it shows delicious flavors of blackberries, red currants, mocha and licorice, with an exotic streak of grilled beef. Drink now. — S.H. (5/1/2009)" -Rated 87, Wine Enthusiast
