One of the best Merlots that you can drink for around $22. Simply fantastic! Great structure for a Merlot! Absolutely LOVE THIS WINE!
Wonderful soft berry taste. Great value
rich tannins. very smoky and bold. delicious.
I purchased for 13.99 at cost plus south coast because they are changing their label. It has great body and lots of fruit. It drank like a very smooth cab. It was well balanced and very enjoyable. It was packed with dark berry fruit and black currants and had a very velvety texture. it was amazing. i love it i love it.
External Reviews for Raymond Vineyard Merlot
Rating: 85/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Wispy notes of dried herbs serve as accents to its rather straightforward, low-intensity fruit, and for lack of more mass and buffering extract, this bottling gradually gives ground to and is ultimately defined by coarsening acidity and mouth-drying tannin.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.
