Rutherford Hill Merlot Reserve
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, ripe black cherry flavor and well-integrated tannins. Despite its boldness, the wine shows elegance and balance, with a silky mouthfeel and a long finish. In short: a delicious Merlot that’s built to last.

"Packaged in a fancy, engraved bottle, the 2010 Merlot Reserve’s dark ruby color is followed by sweet berry fruit, an endearing texture, good spice, richness and seductiveness, and a pleasant, round finish." - Steve Heimoff
