Raymond Napa Reserve Cabernet United States California Napa County Red 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Enthusiast Review Rated 92 A beautiful Cabernet. Pretty tannic now, so if you drink, decant, and have 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 68 years. Wine Tasting Notes Opening aromas of cassis, cherry, blackberry, earth, lilacs and cedar followed by ripe blueberry and blackberry flavors with black pepper and vanilla notes. A complex, full-bodied wine highlighted by lush fruit, and a long, smooth finish. This wine is the perfect match for filet mignon with a Cabernet reduction sauce, marinated prime rib, braised beef short ribs, grilled portobello mushrooms with blue cheese butter, grilled tuna, wild game and hearty pasta dishes or stews. Also a wonderful wine to pair with dark chocolate desserts like flourless chocolate cake.
