"A lovely wine, in the classic Raymond style, soft, voluptuous, balanced and ripe. Not a blockbuster, just a beautiful sip, with cassis and blackcurrant flavors and gentle, complex tannins. A success for this difficult vintage."
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc, this wine shows great depth and intensity. Rich, pronounced berry flavors are enhanced by an earthy nose and toasty oak finish. Fermented in stainless steel, the wine is moved to 60 gallon American and French barrels to complete an average of 22 months of aging. This classic red wine will pair nicely with grilled and roasted meats - beef, lamb, & pork - as well as roasted garlic, robust pastas and spicy vegetarian entrees.
