Raymond Vineyards, founded in 1970, is one of the Napa Valley’s pioneering estates. The 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. 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 Raymond Vineyards have created a Napa icon, with an enduring reputation for elegant wines with a beautiful balance of finesse, opulence and complexity.
Expressive flavours of raspberry and blackberry are complemented by blackcurrant and warm plum. The fresh and vibrant palate is textured with plush tannins through to a smooth and velvety finish.
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.
Fragrant aromas of tropical and stone fruits lead to notes of honeysuckle, accentuated by a touch of toasted almonds. This is a beautifully balanced wine with bright acidity and a creamy texture with a hint of minerality on the finish.
