Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Rutherford Hill Napa Valley Merlot 2019

Rutherford Hill 2019 Merlot is an elegantly refined blend of classic Bordeaux varietals that create a beautiful bouquet of rich aromas and prolonged flavors. Lavish cherry fruit flavors are backed by a rich, balanced structure for an intensely complex Merlot. At Rutherford Hill winery, only French oak barrels are used to age each harvest. These barrels rest naturally in our caves which provide a unique environment that enhances the wine-aging process. Silky, full-flavored, firm, and built for today’s enjoyment, the wine finishes with smooth tannins and intricate layers of flavor on the palate.

Stainless steel tanks with daily pumpovers, pressed at dryness; secondary fermentation to finish in barrels and tanks. On the nose, intense aromas of pomegranate, plum, cherry with hints of baking spices. Medium-bodied and voluminous, with concentrated flavors of dark plum, pomegranate, dried cherries and a mocha finish.

Critic Ratings

Wine Spectator Review - Issue Nov 30, 2021 - Rated 91:
Firm and minerally, with graphite accents to the dried red currant and berry flavors. Bright acidity and savory richness linger on the lithe finish. Drink now through 2024. 20,665 cases made. — KM
