Only 1% of Rutherford Hill’s Merlot makes it into the reserve program, and the quality shows in the bottle. Deeply colored, the wine has intense aromas of dark fruits, boysenberry, blackberry, cedar and nutmeg with hints of tobacco. A full-bodied Merlot, with a cohesive and balanced structure. Layers of complex and dense flavors of blackberry, dark cherry and cassis with a long finish of lush tannin. In short: a delicious Merlot that’s built to last.
