2010 Rutherford Napa Valley Merlot

John Williams farms his benchland and valley floor vineyards without irrigation, providing half the fruit for this wine, the balance from growers in Rutherford, plus 11 percent Carneros fruit from Truchard Vineyards. The tannins feel completely mature, providing a lovely underlying roundness to the plump fruit. Those tannins seem sweet, like a fruity mushroom, while the anise and herb-scented fruit itself is savory. A classic Rutherford red.
