Raymond Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of plum, rhubarb, cassis, pepper and smoke with a hint of vanilla. A red fruit based Cabernet with flavors of cherry, raspberry, rhubarb and red plum with touches of spicy white pepper, vanilla and cocoa on the finish. Beautifully balanced rich fruit flavors, integrated tannins and a smooth texture. A great food wine, the R Collection Cabernet pairs well with grilled wild game, burgers, garlic marinated flank steak or rib eye, spicy Italian sausages, barbequed ribs, braised or smoked beef or pork and baked pasta dishes such as rigatoni or cannelloni.

Ripe in flavor and silky in texture, a pretty wine with black cherry, vanilla, chocolate and spice flavors that manage to remain restrained on the supple finish. Approachable already. Drink now through 2003.

A nice round red, with ripe flavors of black currant, cotton candy, spice and lavish toasty oak. Solid tannins integrate harmoniously with coffee flavors on the finish. Best from 2001 through 2009.

Bright ruby hue. Subdued mineral and berry aromas. A crisp attack leads to a medium-bodied palate with acidic vibrance and grippy tannins. Clean, stylish finish. Straightforward and attractive. Drink now.

Grown principally at Raymond's Zinfandel Lane vineyard, this is totally tannic right now and will need lots of cellar time to evolve. The fruit is firm and ripe, a thin red line of cherry flavor surrounded by the fleshy bulk of tannin, but it's not out of balance, just young. This should expand into something rich and heady with age.

Here's an outstanding reserve Cabernet at a reasonable price. It's firm, focused and complex, leading off with a smoky, toasty core of oak notes and complementary flavors of ripe black cherry, currant, cedar and tar. Deliciously complex on the finish, where the flavors persist. Drink now through 2007.

Roy Raymond Sr. founded this family-run winery back in 1971, and son Walter is now the winemaker. They've turned out quite an effort in the tricky '98 vintage. Their '97 Reserve Cab was No. 64 last year.

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 6-8 years.
