2004 Rutherford Hill Reserve Merlot

More Mer-love! This time for the 2004 Rutherford Hill Reserve Merlot from Napa Valley. My husband and I shared this bottle after dinner the other evening while catching up on some TV shows on the DVR.
Appearance: Clear, deep ruby color.
Nose: Fresh red fruit aromas-plums and berries with just a hint of vanilla and cedar.
Palate: Dry; balanced, medium+ body, acidity and smooth tannins with rich flavors of mixed red & black berries and milk chocolate.
Finish: Long & juicy.
*This bottle was purchased by my husband at The Tasting Room-Uptown Houston. He does not remember the price.
