2016 Napa Valley Rutherford Hill
|Grapes||Merlot, Petit Verdot, Syrah, Cab Franc, Malbec|
This intriguing Bordeaux blend is dominated by Merlot, but also has a good slug of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and some Malbec. Each adds a sophisticated extra and this is remarkably charming. Very Napa in feel and intensity - but never too much. The juicy and rich middle is loaded with smart, dark cherry flesh and ripe blackberry juice well seasoned with charming wood notes, cigar box flavours and lovely cinnamon infused vanilla spiciness. For lovers of these Bordeaux varieties there is lots to dive into here. Deep and sleekly textured this has just enough grunt to keep you going back for more - and a relative bargain from this superb estate in the heart of the Napa Valley. L&S (Dec 2020)
