Wine tasting notes

Rutherford Hill 2016 Merlot is an elegantly refined blend of classic Bordeaux varietals that create a beautiful bouquet of rich aromas and prolonged flavors. Deep ruby in colour with intense aromas of dark cherry, plum, fresh fig with a hint of nutmeg. On the palate medium-bodied with concentrated flavours of dark plum, pomegranate, dried cherries and a mocha finish that lead to supple and lengthy finish.

Expert reviews

James Suckling (2016) - 92 pts

A firm, linear red with blackberry, cherry and dark-chocolate aromas and flavors that follow through to a medium body. Fresh finish. Drink or hold.
