Rutherford Hill Atlas Peak Merlot
Rutherford Hill gained its reputation as a producer of exceptional Merlot. This wine showcases the personality of this Bordeaux varietal as grown in the distinctive appellation of Atlas Peak in the eastern foothills of Napa Valley well over 1,500 feet above the valley floor. Its steep slopes and high elevation produce smaller, more concentrated berries that deliver a wine that is rich and lush, complemented by velvety tannins, for an elegant experience that is truly unforgettable. Drink now through 2031.
