Rutherford Hill Oakville Merlot
Capturing the elegance and charm of Merlot continues to be our mission at Rutherford Hill. Our Oakville appellation-grown Merlot was so intriguing, distinctive and impressive that we created a separate bottling for you to enjoy. This wine highlights Oakville’s distinctive soil and its unique microclimate that is slightly cooler than Rutherford, and slightly warmer than Yountville. This wine showcases our philosophy at Rutherford Hill: producing handcrafted wines of exceptional quality that reflect our vineyards and their unique microclimates.
Tasting Notes: Ruby in color, this wine provides rich aromas cassis, anice, sage intermingled with cinnamon and cardamom spice notes while delivering a lush and full-bodied mouthfeel with flavors of cassis and dark chocolate.
