User Reviews for Don Raffaele Merlot

Winemaker's Notes:

This small Napa vineyard owned by Peter Chiarella has consistently made one of the finest merlots in the valley and the 2003 is no exception. Very much in the style of the classic Pomerol wines, Don Raffaele merlot displays a lovely forthcoming nose of raspberries and chocolate, a bright and lively palate, and generous raspberry, cedar and cinnamon flavors. The wine lingers pleasingly with ripe smooth tannins and a sweet, polished finish. Complement the wine's complexity and delicate power by pairing it with quality grilled beef or pork.
