Raymond Generations Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

95 Points, Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Generations is a wine that comes from both St. Helena and Oakville and is 99% Cabernet Sauvignon, with the balance Petit Verdot. This beauty showcases how much Jean Charles Boisset has improved the quality of the Raymond wines. There are 2,112 cases of this wine, which has an inky purple color and a beautiful nose of licorice, toasty oak, blackberry, cassis, spice box and forest floor. The wine has great intensity, a full-bodied mouthfeel, terrific balance, and well-integrated acidity, tannin, alcohol and wood. It should drink well for 25-30+ years. One of the iconic wineries of Napa, Raymond Vineyards has been resurrected from its moribund state by the charismatic Burgundian transplant, Jean-Charles Boisset. One of the more exuberant and dramatic personalities of the wine world, his vision for quality and pursuit of it can often get lost in his gregarious, almost excessively contagious enthusiasm. This is the strongest lineup yet from Raymond Vineyards, with Boisset creating his own version of single-sector wines from different microclimates within Napa Valley, all of them outstanding. One of Boisset’s achievements, in addition to quality, is that all of their vineyards are now farmed organically or biodynamically.Tel. (707) 963-3141; www.raymondvineyards.com" Issue# 221 10/15. 93 Points, James Suckling: "A well-structured red with subtle blueberry, blackberry and mineral aromas and flavors. Full body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh finish. Better in 2019 but very beautiful to taste now." 1/16. 93 Points, James Laube, Wine Spectator: "Lavishly oaked, exhibiting a strong mix of mocha, espresso and smoke notes. The fruit holds its own, with dense blueberry, blackberry, black licorice, tobacco leaf and savory roasted herb flavors, ending with a long, full, sustained aftertaste. Drink now through 2027. 2,110 cases made." 5/16.
