Winemaker's Notes:

The 2011 R Collection Field Blend is a complement to any occasion, whether a casual dinner at home or a more formal gathering with friends and family. This medium-to-full bodied wine offers firm, juicy tannins and bright acidity. The nose reveals the seductive fruit aromas of ripe raspberry, cherries and blackberry. The palate rewards with delicious flavors of red currant, fresh-picked blueberries and ground white peppercorn before culminating with a lengthy finish that displays exceptional balance and a velvety texture.

About Raymond Vineyard:

For generations, Raymond Vineyards has been an integral part of the Napa Valley, with now five generations of viticultural and winemaking expertise. Our new winemaking team captures the essence of the past while infusing the energy of the future and the vibrancy of the next generation into each and every wine. “It is important to retain the core foundation that made this brand legendary in Napa Valley, while keeping the style fresh and relevant to today’s wine drinkers” says Stephanie Putnam.

In addition to our top-notch winemakers and viticulturalists, Raymond has also tapped into a world-renowned winemaker, Phillipe Melka, to assist on our high-end Cabernets and complement the inherent strengths of the team.

As for a specific style, the team aims for the three B’s – Big, Bold, Balanced – yet with refinement and elegance. This philosophy lends itself well to the underlying principal of terroir that dates back thousands of years where the interrelationship between soil, climate, and plant are enhanced by the passion of people to convey an authentic sense of place. Our winemaking team allows the purest expression of the fruit to reign, with aromas and flavors that fill your glass and your palate with wines that are unmistakably powerful, intriguingly complex, and beautifully integrated.
