Raphael Estate Merlot is an elegant, structured wine with bright fruit aromas, a medium body and balanced acidity. Hand harvested, wild fermented and bottled unfiltered and un-fined. Showing notes of blackberries, graphite and black olive, blend with fine tannins and contribute to a lingering finish.
Calling all wine lovers! Whether you’re a certified connoisseur or a wine novice, you’ll see we have something in common: we love wine. All wine. But we’re particularly excited about French wine.
We (Greg and Ray) would like to welcome you to a new veture between 2 friends. Every time Ray and Greg got together it always began with some wine. it could be Greg’s homemade wine or spending some time out at the Long Island wineries. This last time, we got to talking about starting a new veture. “What if we were to start a wine blog?” This was the question as we entere Raphael Vieyards.
