Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Raymond Nostalgic Selection Merlot.

Original tasting and review : This is Raymond Nostalgic Selection Merlot, Napa County, California, 2013, finished at 13.5% alcohol and first sampled 2 years from vintage date, in September, 2015.

Inspired by this wine: Let's chit chat about family and friends - no need to hurry on.

In the glass: Deep rustic red.

On the nose: Poured at room temperature and swirled vigorously, shows shy raspberry and red currant.  From the aroma, seems like this will be bright and taut.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact bright red currant berries, carried solidly into your cheeks.  Fun red fruits, including raspberry and currants.

In summary: Overall, just touches three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale,
