Raymond Vineyard R Collection Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, California USA
Raymond Vineyards, founded in 1970, is one of the Napa Valley's pioneers and great estates. Arriving in 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 has grown to 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. This wine is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from esteemed vineyards across California and slightly aged in oak. The 2016 R Collection Cabernet Sauvignon opens with seductive aromas of cherry and red plum accented with notes of rhubarb and pepper. On the palate, flavors of Bing cherry, raspberry, current and cocoa intermingle seamlessly and lead to a long, smooth finish. Beautifully balanced, the 2016 R Collection Cabernet Sauvignon displays well-integrated tannins and is the perfect complement to grilled flank steak.
