Raymond Family Classic Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
A full-bodied, well-structured wine, the 2012 vintage opens with inviting dark berry notes accented by hints of cocoa and an undertone of mulling spices. The wine was purposely crafted in a style that allows it to pair expertly with a wide range of cuisine. Try it alongside a well-marbled ribeye.
This wine uses Cabernet grapes from three unique appellations, resulting in a fun and diverse wine to make. The blend is comprised of fruit from the Napa Valley, Sonoma County, and Lake County. Napa Valley is the backbone of the blend, with its terroir providing the fullest expression of black fruits and integrated tannins; Sonoma County’s fog influence produces grapes that give the wine structure, balance and acidity; Lake County’s growing season is short, making for red, jammy wines that are easy to enjoy. Small amounts of Merlot and Petit Verdot were added before bottling to provide depth & structure to the final blend.
