Raymond Reserve 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is enticing on the nose with dark red cherry, cedar spice and anise aromas. Dry, medium-plus-bodied with flavours of dark berry, raspberry and dark spices finishing long and with velvety tannins, of course. Pour with roast beef. Drink of hold.

Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A lovely and robust Napa Cab. Aromas of black cherry and currant, along with black pepper, eucalyptus, graphite and smoke. Full bodied, with some soft, drying tannins, and medium+ acidity. Fruit flavours on the palate are rounded, ripe and rich, balanced nicely with some herbal notes and a peppery, smoky note on the finish. Enjoy with any grilled meats.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
