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.


Vintage
Rain during the early part of the growing season increased mildew pressure in the
vineyard, however, the summer warmed up and the mildew threat dried up. The
weather provided excellent conditions for the 2019 harvest in California. The summer
was relatively mild and the warm, with the warm, dry weather continuing into the
autumn and creating perfect conditions for harvest. Overall, yields were slightly lower
than the 2018 bumper crop, but the fruit created beautifully balanced wines with
bright expression.


Vineyard
The R Collection Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the finest vineyards throughout
California, with each area adding a unique layer into the overall taste profile. The
vines are planted in gravel soils overlaid with alluvial layers, which provides the vines
with good drainage.


Winemaking
Minimal intervention winemaking techniques were used to allow the true Californian
terroir to shine through. The grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks with native
and selected yeasts. Minimal pump-overs took place to avoid over-extraction of
tannins. Minimal use of French oak influenced the maturation which lasted for six
months, adding subtle complexity.


Tasting Note
This Cabernet Sauvignon opens with aromas of dark red fruits and blackberry pie
accented with a touch of clove. Opulent on the palate with rich flavours of
blackcurrant and plum which intermingle seamlessly with the soft, round tannins to
create a long, delicious finish.
