Supple layers of red berry fruit and spiced oak coalesce to form the beautifully balanced Raka Barrel Select Merlot. Pronounced notes of ripe plums, red cherries and subdued mint present themselves on the nose. This juicy fruit quality follows through on to the palate where it is complemented by spiced oak undertones. Supple tannins coat the mouth, lending the wine a lovely smooth texture. Fruit driven with firm, yet soft tannins make the Raka Barrel Select Merlot a delightfully approachable wine that proves itself as a worthy companion to casual fare. Serve with pasta dishes or a hearty beef stew.
