Rutherford Ranch Merlot 2015 Review

Exactly what someone might expect of a Napa Merlot, this wine is black fruit dominant, with notes of chocolate and vanilla powder, along with a hint of anise. Solid acidity brightens the palate, drawing it out to a clean finish, but this Merlot is largely driven by ripe blackberry and black cherry fruit.
