Raymond Vineyards Reserve Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Classic Napa Valley Cabernet redolent of blackcurrant
and cedar underpinned by chocolate flavours - elegant,
smooth and opulent.
Producer Note
Raymond Vineyards, founded in 1970, is one of the Napa Valley’s pioneering estates.
The Raymond family arrived in Napa in 1933 and have become deeply connected to
the valley’s winemaking origins. In 1970, they established a 36 hectare estate in
Rutherford, which now comprises 121 hectares in Rutherford, St. Helena and Jameson
Canyon. Raymond’s Rutherford and St. Helena estate vineyards are certified organic
and biodynamic; and 100% of the winery’s power comes from renewable solar energy.
Five generations of the Raymond family have created a Napa icon, with an enduring
reputation for elegant wines with a beautiful balance of finesse, opulence and
complexity.

Vineyard
The grapes for the Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon were sourced selected vineyards
in the Napa Valley from Oak Knoll to north of Calistoga, with the majority of fruit coming
from estate vineyards. The grapes were picked early in the morning hours to retain
freshness. The vineyards are diligently monitored throughout the growing season to
balance the crop size and quality. Shoot thinning and leaf removal early in the growing
season, followed by cluster thinning at véraison, help to achieve evenly ripened grapes
with concentrated flavours.
Winemaking
The wine underwent an extended maceration and was aged for 18 months in French
oak, of which 37% was new. The balance was aged in twice and thrice-used French
oak. The final blend includes a small proportion of additional varieties for added depth
and complexity. The wine was bottled unfiltered, contributing greater texture and
presence to the mid palate.
Tasting Note
Expressive flavours of raspberry and blackberry are complemented by blackcurrant
and warm plum, underpinned by chocolatey nuances. The elegant and opulent
palate is textured with plush tannins through to a smooth and velvety finish.
