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 are sourced from vineyards in Napa Valley, Sonoma and Lake County,
which combine to create a distinctive flavour profile reflecting the characteristics of
each of the unique appellations. The fruit from each location lends its individual
character to the final blend: the Napa Valley lends the backbone, along with dark
fruits and integrated tannins; the Sonoma County fog's influence imparts structure,
balance and acidity; and the Lake County's short growing season yields jammy red
fruits.
Winemaking
The grapes were carefully sorted, prior to traditional vinification methods in stainless
steel tanks. The wine was then aged for approximately 12 months in a combination
of temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and French oak barrels, imparting a
touch of oak spice and complexity to the final blend.
Tasting Note
Elegant aromas of cherry, blackberry, cassis and a touch of sweet spice,
complement the soft, round texture of this Cabernet Sauvignon with its well
integrated tannins and good length. Truly a classic.
Serving Suggestion
An ideal match for seared steak, gourmet burgers or grilled lamb. Also a treat with a
beef stir-fry with fresh ginger.
