2011 Rutherford Merlot
Dallas Morning News Gold Winner; Denver International Wine Competition Gold Winner. Pitch-perfect balance and silky smooth.
Lot 388 opens up with aromas of pine needles, big oak, and savory red fruit. Piercing blueberry mineral notes dance on the palate. Truly a beautifully built wine with pitch-perfect balance and great structure. Totally approachable right now, and a tremendous value for Rutherford Merlot.
Style: Medium, Fruity
Flavors: Blackberry, Raspberry, Rose
Born out of the same partnership with the producer of Lot 344, this is our latest collaboration with one of Napa Valley's premier grape growing families. They own and farm some of the best dirt in Napa (including Oakville, Rutherford, St Helena, and Calistoga, among others), but only have a small brand of their own. We were very lucky to get our hands on some of their 2011 Oakville and Rutherford production, and so are you!
