Winemaker Notes

A nice swirl of the glass reveals aromas of sandalwood, currant and plum that pleasantly lead to enticing flavors of blueberry, blackberry and violet. Juicy and robust, our 2012 Reserve Selection Merlot displays nice structure, firm tannins and a lengthy finish worthy of the designation of Reserve Selection.

Blend: 85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon

WW 91
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
Staying true to the varietal's integrity, the 2012 Raymond is very concise and never veers to close the power and weight of Cabernet. Medium ruby color; dried leaf and brisk red fruit aroma; medium bodied, textured on the palate; dry, medium acidity, good balance; ripe fruit flavors, mostly on the red berry side; medium finish, smooth aftertaste. (Tasted: September 4, 2015, San Francisco, CA)

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.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
