Rutherford Hill Merlot Reserve
The aim of our Reserve Merlot program is to produce powerful Merlot wines with aging potential. Through much deliberation and consideration our winemaker composed this balanced and structured Napa Valley Merlot. The combination of outstanding, hand selected fruit, exceptional French oak and experienced winemaking talent resulted in a guest-worthy merlot. All our winemaking and vineyard efforts across our 200 estate acres are focused upon making our Reserve Merlot as impressive and memorable as possible.
