Raymond Estates R Collection Merlot 2007

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Raymond Vineyards has been a pioneer in Napa with a great history and fabulous commitment to the region for more than 30 years. The R Collection Merlot is balanced, rich and polished, with a pure, plush core of blackberry, wild berry and black cherry fruit. One can pick up hints of anise, cedar and sage, finishing with vanilla and ripe fruit. This wine is enjoyable by itself or paired with appetizers, including full flavored cheese, semi-soft herbal cheeses, salads, sandwiches or thicker, mildly spiced soups or stews.

    A beautiful wine, easily able to stand beside more expensive ones. Made with some Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, it's soft, dry and complex, showing flavors of cherries, berries, currants and herbs.

    Lush black cherry fruit is backed up with raisiny compote aromas of cinnamon and spice. Delicious on its own, it works just as well with hearty fare such as spicy black beans, lasagna and beef.
