Raymond Napa Valley Reserve Merlot'02, Napa, USA

Raymond Napa Valley Reserve Merlot

Full-bodied and spicy Merlot, the Cabernet's lover will like this Merlot!

Technical Data:88% Merlot, 12 % Cabernet Sauvignon aged 14 months in oak barrels.

Description:Deep garnet color. Blackberry nose followed by spice and oaky aromas. Full-bodied spicy Merlot, showing Blackberry and plumy flavors laced with cedary spiciness, firm tannins and oak undertones. A roasted coffee bean aftertaste and a long lasting finish complement its description.

Food Pairing & Service:This Merlot is full bodied so personally I will pair it with steak without a doubt. Might be also a good idea to pair with hearty pasta dishes. Drinkable at an early age, but has the potential to be cellared for at least 6 years past the vintage date.


Suggested Retail Price:$14.99
