Tasting Notes:
tasted: August 4, 2008 , from a member
90 points "Finish: persistent; I liked the subtle refinement, with layers of flavor, a silky texture, and a long finish. On the negative side, the mid-palate body was lacking, making the wine feel a little bit thin, even watery in the mid-palate. My wife liked it less than I did."

"A stellar example of why Rutherford Hill is king of the Merlot world, the 2004 vintage is rich with aromas of berries and cocoa. Flavors of dark cherries and chocolate abound in this soft and fleshy, balanced Merlot. The finish is silky and lingering with a hint of vanilla, cinnamon and tobacco. Delicious, alone as an aperitif, as well as when paired with hearty foods like roasts, lamb and steak."
