Raymond Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2015

Member Review by mrsrhampton:

Consistently stunning wine. Loads of deep berry, chocolate and nice tannins. Smells of spicy wood and herbs and red fruit. Perfectly paired with spicy red pasta dishes and pungent blue cheese.

Big pungent nose showing off some berry aroma but a lot of oak bouquet. Velvety smooth on the tongue. It takes a few seconds to detect the fruit. So, I think this will be a great food wine (grilled blue cheese stuffed flank steak, tonight). Still a bit of drying tannin on the edges and the back of the throat. Such an easy wine to drink, but I would not encourage anyone to lay this one away for much longer.

The deep garnet colored Cabernet opens with inviting aromas of mixed berries including blueberries, raspberries, cranberries, with layers of white pepper and cloves. On the palate, this big, bold, well-structured Cabernet has concentrated flavors of dark chocolate, tobacco and spice, with atoasty, long finish.

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast "A beautiful Cabernet. Pretty tannic now, so if you drink, decant, and have it with rich, oily meats and cheeses. But the heart of black cherries, and cassis, and the overall balance, enable this wine to develop over the next 6-8 years."
