Reviews and Ratings

RESERVE SELECTION / The 2015 vintage of the Raymond Reserve Selection is a lively Cabernet Sauvignon from California's Napa Valley with dark chocolate on the nose. Lots of fresh and ripe red fruit, plum and raspberry notes on this 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, with the balance in Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc wine grapes. Bottled unfiltered, the wine also spent one year and a half in new French oak. Great cellar wine. A delicious red with ripe red fruit, plum and raspberry notes. Pair with a rare steak. MINE: Raymond Reserve Selection 2015 is a robust and full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with a splash of Petit Verdot, Malbec and Petit Sirah from grapes sourced in the Napa Valley, California. The wine was aged 19 months in some new French oak and bottled unfiltered and is rich and full on the mid-palate with ripe, fleshy blackberries, dark chocolate, savoury spice and toasty oak. Good acidity on this well-structured red with soft and silky tannins. The Raymond family arrived in the Napa Valley in 1933 and became connected to the Beringer family via marriage in 1936. Roy Raymond Sr. worked as winemaker for Beringer from 1933 until 1970, when he and his two sons set out on their own with the 90-acre estate property in Rutherford. OTHER: The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a smoking value and has high-quality Cabernet notes of crème de cassis, spice, vanilla bean, and fruitcake-like nuances. It's charming, sweetly fruited, medium to full-bodied, and certainly already delicious. Maturity: 2019-2029. Score - 92 (Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com, Jan. 31, 2019). - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
