Smooth & Supple
Beef > Herbs
Another outstanding vintage from our friends at Northstar. I've never had a bad vintage of their wines. The 2010 stands out as exceptional. Licorice and Mocha on the palate with smooth supple tannins and a strong finish of smoke and fruit, Love this wine...it beats many Cabernets in terms of structure and substance.
Balanced, silky, smooth, and fruit forward. Just a wonderful Merlot! Worth the price!
After years of trying the Merlot grape across varying price ranges.....The Raymond Reserve Merlot drinks smoother than most more expensive wines in it's class. Smooth, balanced, and a great mixture of fruit and complexity! You cannot beat this Merlot for the price! I've had a $60 bottle of Cakebread Merlot, and this beats it hands down. Wonderful wine! Enjoy!
