Winemaker Notes

The Napa Valley Reserve wines reflect the proud heritage of five generations of Raymond family winemaking in the Napa Valley. Featuring a Cabernet Sauvignon, Red Wine, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, the wines are beautifully balanced with intense fruit, good acidity, solid structure and a velvety mouthfeel.

The velvet labels adorning the red wines symbolize the texture, emotion and feeling in the wine, the dynamic legacy of the Raymond family and a vibrant vision of our future.

Critical Acclaim

93 Points/Decater
Having spent 19 months in 37% new French oak, this Raymond Reserve includes grapes harvested from Oakville, Rutherford, and St. Helena and delivers a potent glassful of voluptuous spice-dusted blackberry fruit, a hint of caramel and cocoa nibs. It’s full-bodied and mouth-filling revealing layers of silken black fruit that rushes over the palate redolent of blackberry jam, blueberry compote, and raspberry coulis. Flashy, succulent oak spices tinged with dark chocolate underscored by satiny tannins make for easy drinking. An enduring sweet finish beckons another sip. This is Napa hedonism wrapped in a characteristically Boisset flashy package with a satiny-textured label that rather accurately teases out the kind of texture you could expect from this Cabernet-dominant blend.

92 Points/Vinous
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Selection lifts out of the glass with tons of sheer intensity. Inky dark red cherry, mocha, cedar, spice and licorice are pushed front and center. This mid-weight, supple Cabernet has so much to offer. It’s a terrific introduction to the Raymond range.

92 Points/Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Reserve is composed of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc, coming from more than 20 different sites, with 29% coming from estate vineyards in St. Helena and Rutherford. It was aged in French oak barrels, 37% new. Deep garnet-purple colored, it rocks up with ready-for-business scents of blackcurrant pastilles, redcurrant jelly and Morello cherries with hints of dried Provence herbs, pencil shavings and dark chocolate. Full-bodied, the palate is jam-packed with crunchy black fruits, supported by firm, grainy tannins and bold freshness, finishing long and savory. 

91 Points/Wine Spectator
Ripe and welcoming, with waves of red currant preserves and plum sauce rolling through, wrapped with red licorice and infused with a fruitcake note on the finish. Features a lightly toasty frame that lets the fruit hold center stage.

90 Points/Jeb Dunnuck
Another outstanding wine, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Reserve comes from over 20 different sites and was brought up in 37% new French oak. Redcurrants, leafy tobacco, and spice notes define the bouquet, and it’s lush, fruit-loaded, and ready to go. Enjoy bottles any time over the coming 7-8 years or so. I wouldn’t be surprised to see it evolve longer.
