Rutherford Hill 2009 Reserve Merlot (Napa Valley)

While this doesn't quite rival the great 2007, it is superior to the 2008. Rich, concentrated and structured, this has forward black-cherry, chocolate, anise and sandalwood flavors that are wrapped in firm but smooth, supple tannins. It should develop in the bottle over the next six years, but it can also be consumed now.
