Tasting Notes
Rutherford Hills was founded in 1972 and was a pioneering estate in the production of Californian Merlot, now a lot less trendy but no reason not to try this excellent wine. Made from 70% Merlot 15% each of Cabernet-Sauvignon and Syrah aged in new French oak barrels for 16 months. Powerful dark fruits, sweet plums, cassis and spice all leap from the glass wrapped in balanced oak with a good balance od acidity.
