Raymond Vineyards Family Classic Cabernet Sauvignon

The Classic Cabernet Sauvignon from Raymond Vineyards is a superb example of Californian Cabernet. This delicious red wine is the perfect ,atch to steak or any red meat dish yet it also can be drunk on it's own to appreciate the full cassis flavours and complex sweet spice that this wine displays.

Raymond Vineyards has over 121 hectares of Estate vineyards in the Napa Valley, in three locations. Each parcel is matched to varietals which perform well in that particular climate and soil type. In addition, the winery maintains long term growing contracts with over 15 Napa Valley growers, allowing the winery to take advantage of the micro-climates and sub-appellations within the Napa Valley.

 

Vineyard

 

The grapes are sourced from vineyards in Napa Valley, Sonoma and Lake County, which combine to create a distinctive flavour profile reflecting the characteristics of each of the unique appellations. Napa Valley lends the backbone of the blend, along with dark fruits and integrated tannins; with the Sonoma County fog's influence imparting structure, balance and acidity; while Lake County's short growing season yields jammy red fruits.

 

Winemaking

 

The grapes were carefully sorted, prior to traditional vinification methods in stainless steel tanks. The wine was then aged for approximately 12 months in a combination of temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and French oak barrels, imparting a touch of oak spice and complexity to the final blend.

 

Tasting Note

 

Elegant aromas of cherry, blackberry, cassis and a touch of sweet spice, complement the soft, round texture of this Cabernet Sauvignon with its well integrated tannins and good length. Truly a classic.

 

Serving Suggestion

 

An ideal match for seared steak, gourmet burgers or grilled lamb. Also a treat with a beef stir-fry with fresh ginger.
