R Collection by Raymond – Lot N°5 Merlot 2016 – California

The nose is structured and offers a slight concentration. It reveals notes of cassis, cherry and small notes of berries associated with small touches of licorice, Zan as well as discreet hints of cassis bud and spices. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, suave and offers a slight acidulous frame, a small fat as well as fluidity. On the palate this wine expresses notes of acidulous cherry candy, cassis and small notes of blackberry associated with small touches of juicy plum as well as discreet hints of crunchy raspberry, spices and a very discreet touch of cassis bud. Tannins are fine. Good length.
