Raphael Estate 2010 Merlot 2014

Region: Long Island

Winemaker's Notes:  Our first label Merlot is made from our finest Estate grown fruit. A balanced, full bodied wine full of complexity and flavor, softened by velvety tannins. Our reserve grapes are hand harvested, hand sorted and wild fermented. Aged for 18 months in French oak barrels before bottling unfiltered and unfined. This wine was structured to age gracefully for many years
