Raymond Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

External Review by Shop Wine Direct:

Wine Enthusiast ReviewRated 93 EDITORS CHOICEOther wineries come and go. Raymond remains, offering solid Napa Valley Cab at a fair price. The '05 Reserve calls to mind the very fine 2000, but actually costs less. It's a dry, elegantly structured wine, rich in sweet fine tannins, and offering up complex, delicious flavors of freshly picked ripe blackberries, spicy cassis, baked cherry pie and smoky oak. Drink now through 2015.Wine Tasting NotesOpening 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.
