Average price: $55.99 from 4 stores
Very focused and precise on the nose with a fine oak sheen and chestnutty accents covering a core of lusciously ripe black fruits. In the mouth one discovers a fabulous texture, open, broad and clear on the palate, with lots of tannins here but it's well balanced with tons of ripe fruit. very black cherry, blackberry, Clean, precise black cherry, blackberry fruit fills the mouth yet this remains fairly elegant and long with a fine balance of almost jammy sweet fruit with brilliant freshness. The finish is long, showing off a fine blend of wood spice and candied black cherry all supported by super fine tannins. Probably will be at its best in 6-8 years. 94pts

  • 77883DM94523 I have to recommend the District Cabernet series from Raymond Vineyards. Each of these wines is from a specific AVA within the Napa Valley (Calistoga, Rutherford, Oakville, St Helena) and retails for around $75. Winemaker Stephanie Putnam (formerly of Far Niente) really knows her Cab!
