Rutherford Hill 1997 Merlot (Napa Valley)

This nicely textured wine shows a stylish nose and good depth, with a bouquet of black cherry, cocoa and anise. A big wine, with a plush, rich mouthfeel, it pours on classy plum and chocolate flavors in an accessible manner. Full but even tannins show on the tart cherry finish. Enjoyable now, even better in one or two years.
