Our 2014 R Collection Cabernet Sauvignon, deep garnet in the glass, opens with alluring aromas of dark red fruits, boysenberry pie and a touch of a lightly candied violet. Upon the palate this luscious Cabernet Sauvignon presents rich flavors of dried plums, Medjool dates, red currants and bright berries. This succulent Cabernet has a medium weight and soft, round tannins that lead to a memorable finish.
|Wine maker notes
|A new Cabernet Sauvignon exclusively offered at retail, theFamily Classic Cabernet combines three appellations Napa, Sonoma and Lake County, to create a distinct flavor profile that reflects the characteristics of the separate terroirs and a complex, layered wine. 70% of the grapes come from estate vineyards or our long-time vineyard partners in Napa, 24% from Sonoma County vineyards, and 6% from Lake County. The wine is typical of its predominantly Napa origins, full-bodied and well-structured with bold tannins.
|Raymond Vineyards, founded in 1970, is one of the Napa Valley’s pioneers and great estates. Arriving to Napa in 1933, the Raymond family became deeply connected to the valley’s winemaking origins. In 1970, they established a 90-acre estate in Rutherford that now comprises 300 acres in Rutherford, St. Helena and Jameson Canyon. Five generations of the Raymond family created a Napa icon, with an enduring reputation for elegant wines with a beautiful balance of finesse, power and complexity.
Today, inspired by the vision of Proprietor Jean-Charles Boisset, Raymond is a dynamic destination dedicated to inspiring its guests’ passion for fine wine in an environment of exploration, creativity, and elegant whimsicality, where each in a series of diverse experiences progresses visitors into another world of discovery and exceptional wines.
Further, 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.
