Raymond Reserve Merlot 2009
The wine opens with fragrant aromas of ripe plum and cranberry with hints of espresso bean, leather and Earl Grey tea. On the palate, bold flavors of mixed red and black berries are layered with the earthiness of clay and stone, with smooth tannins for a long, toasty finish. A versatile wine to pair with a variety of foods, including roast chicken with vegetables, lamb chops, marinated pork tenderloin, smoked salmon with wild rice pilaf, braised duck, mushroom risotto, and hearty soups and stews. Delicious at an early age, but will benefit from additional cellaring of 5-7 years past the vintage date.
Celebrating over 35 years of Napa Valley winemaking tradtion, Raymond Vineyards specializes in Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
