Deep garnet in color with lush aromas of warm blueberry, dried cherry, brown sugar and allspice with hints of licorice, briary and toasty oak. The entry of this Cabernet Sauvignon is silky, smooth and supple. A subtle minerality complements
flavors of black cherry, fresh strawberry and star anise. This wine is well-structured with velvety tannins and a lasting finish.
Generations Cabernet Sauvignon pairs well with a juicy filet mignon or rib eye steak with sautéed mushrooms, roast duck breast with figs or braised beef short ribs. Delicious at release, but with the potential to age 15-20 years past the vintage date.
"This is the darkest, biggest, richest of Raymond's 2007 Cabernets. It's ripe and full in blackberries and currants, with a thick coating of sweet, toasty oak, but it's not really drinkable now because the tannins are so strong. Designed for the cellar, it should develop bottle complexity over the next 10–12 years.
