Rapheals Estate Merlot 2007 is medium garnet in the glass thinning slightly on the edges. Bouquet of lightly charry smoke and toast with undercurrents of bramble fruit and caramel. Flavors are ripe and fruity with jammy currants and black plums. Develops white pepper, mushrooms and birch root flavors. Medium bodied wine has smooth tannins with a mild acid presence. Medium length on the finish with tar, tobacco, and loam mineral tones. Good as an aperitif. Pair with grilled red meats.
