Raymond R Collection Merlot fills the mouth with smooth cherry, raspberry, and plum flavors along with hints of earth and spice in the toasty vanilla finish
This is a big fruit-forward, well-structured Merlot that opens with aromas of black cherry, raspberry, plum, chocolate, black pepper, spice, cedar and vanilla bean. It fills the mouth with black cherry, blackberry, black licorice, plum, hints of nutmeg and spicy oak followed by toasty vanilla in the smooth finish. This medium-bodied wine is well balanced and approachable with a good combination of acid and tannins. Pairs well with pork tenderloin, barbequed chicken, ribs and grilled salmon.
