Raphael 2012 First Label Merlot (North Fork of Long Island)

Whiffs of balsamic vinegar, leather and spice accent this rustic yet elegant Merlot. Ripe red cherry and raspberry flavors brighten the palate, but complexities of tobacco and riding saddle maintain that deeply savory tone. Coarse, fine-grained tannins and brisk acidity lend structure and gravitas. Anna Lee C. Iijima
