Rutherford Hill 2014 Merlot is an elegantly refined blend of classic Bordeaux varietals that create a beautiful bouquet of rich aromas and prolonged flavors. Lavish cherry fruit flavors are backed by a rich, balanced structure for an intensely complex Merlot. At Rutherford Hill winery, only French oak barrels are used to age each harvest. These barrels rest naturally in our caves which provide a unique environment that enhances the wine-aging process. Silky, full-flavored, firm, and built for today's enjoyment, the wine finishes with smooth tannins and intricate layers of flavor on the palate.

Wine EnthusiastPunchy red fruit meets brawny tannin and substantial oak in this red, which includes small amounts of Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Its cherry and cassis notes are seasoned with dried herb highlights.
