2019 Raymond 'Reserve Selection' Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Winemaker Notes: Welcoming red fruit aromas waft from the glass in this 2019 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Waves of red currants and plum sauce roll across the palate with notes of red licorice and spice-dusted blackberry fruit flavors. Full-bodied with fine-grained tannins, the finish has a hint of caramel and lingers.
Blend: 93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 1% Merlot
Vinous - "The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Selection is a blend taken from 14 sites across the valley. Succulent red cherry, spice, mocha and new leather are all kicked up in this juicy, mid-weight offering. The Reserve Selection is a terrific introduction to these wines. Best After 2021."
Jeb Dunnuck - "The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Reserve is also incredible, and given the large quantities here, it should be relatively easy to find. Lots of currants, tobacco, cedar, and dried herb notes emerge from the glass, and it’s medium to full-bodied, with nicely integrated oak, sweet tannins, and a great finish. Hats off to winemaker Stephanie Putnam for making such an impressive wine at this price point and quantity. Drink bottles over the coming 7-8 years. Best After 2022."
James Suckling - "Aromas of blackcurrants, dried herbs and suede. Medium-to full-bodied with nice transparency. Fine tannins. Bright acidity helps to keep things lively."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "Blended from more than a dozen vineyards (about one-third is estate fruit), the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Selection is a ripe, soft, voluptuous effort, with notes of cinnamon, cedar, dark chocolate, cherries and cassis. Medium to full-bodied, it finishes with a velvety flourish. At 30,000 cases, it should be reasonably available and affordable. Best After 2022."
