Capturing and presenting Merlot's style and charm has been our primary mission since our founding. Experience matters. Rutherford Hill 2007 Merlot benefits from three decades of Napa Valley history with this perennial favorite, offering an elegant and refined interpretation of the classic Bordeaux varietal. Estate vineyards that we purchased and developed in the 90's provided over 70% of the grapes in this wine. The Merlot lots were woven together with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Syrah with superb results.
