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 from the
vineyards in Rutherford and St. Helena, as well as select nearby growers. The estate
vineyards are located on gravelly alluvial fan soils with good drainage, necessary for
growing excellent quality Cabernet Sauvignon. 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 veraison, help to achieve evenly ripened grapes with concentrated
flavours.
Winemaking
This wine spent an average of 21 days on the skins, then was aged for 18 months in
30% new French oak. The balance was aged in once and twice-used French oak.
The final blend includes a small proportion of additional varieties for added depth
and complexity.
Tasting Note
This Reserve Selection Cabernet Sauvignon has rich aromas of blackcurrant, black
cherry and plum that are enhanced by fragrant notes of raspberry and cocoa. Ripe
cherry and peppery spice flavours compliment the well-structured and complex
palate.
Serving Suggestion
A great match with roast pork tenderloin or hearty pasta dishes.
