2013 Raymond Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Reserve

The generic 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Reserve comes from a mix of sites, ranging from Yountville in the south to Calistoga in the north, as well as some mountain vineyards, such as Atlas Peak. A blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc, it has a dense purple color and a beautiful nose of blue and black fruit, licorice, graphite and subtle toast. It spent 18 months in 100% new French oak and was bottled unfiltered. This beauty can be drunk now or cellared for another two decades or more. Drink 2015 - 2035

Raymond 2013 Reserve Selection Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley)

(Editor's Choice) A larger offering from the producer, this is well crafted at an extremely fair price. Raspberry dances around spicy acidity, dusty tar and notions of cedar, pencil and black olive. It remains fairly approachable on the palate in its well-integrated oak and tannin.

Description
Winery Notes:

In The Vineyard:
The grapes for the Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon were sourced from our vineyards in Rutherford and St. Helena, as well as select nearby growers. Our estate vineyards are located on gravelly alluvial fan soils with good drainage, necessary for growing excellent quality Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyards are diligently monitored throughout the growing season to balance the crop size and quality. Truly a representation of Napa Valley Cabernet at its finest, the blend represents 11 of the 16 districts of the Napa Valley. The dark fruit and tannins come from the fruit in the north while the rich texture is from fruit in the south.

About The Vintage:
The 2013 vintage in Napa Valley was one of the earliest harvested vintages in years. A warm spring led to early bud break and created the perfect environment for flowering and fruit set. With warm days and cool nights, our team was able to maintain ideal acid levels with optimum, bright fruit flavors.

Conversations With The Winemaker:
The wine spent between 25 and 43 days on skins, then was aged for 18 months in 30% new French oak (mostly Demptos, Saury and Seguin Moreau). The balance was aged in once- and twice-used French oak. The final blend includes small amounts of Petit Verdot, Petite Sirah and Cabernet Franc for added depth and complexity. The wine was bottled unfiltered contributing greater texture and presence to the mid palate.

Wine Profile:
Our 2013 Napa Valley Reserve Selection Cabernet Sauvignon opens with rich aromas of plum and dark red fruits with a touch of mocha and earth. Flavors of dark chocolate, blackberry and raspberry are perfectly accented with a touch of licorice. Enveloping on the palate, this wine has a lingering finish and well-integrated tannins. Enjoy this wine over the next 5-9 years.
