This is a really nice Cabernet. Pours a nice violet/purple color with some nice red hues mixed in. Towards the edges there are some pinkish hues. Aromas of strawberry, cranberry, raspberry and vanilla. Very appealing. Starts off with ample red fruit. Strawberry jam and cranberries hit the palate first and last throughout. In the middle and on the back end, there are some creamy vanilla and oak flavors. They really mesh nicely with fruit. This is a nice medium-full bodied red with nice silky tannins. NIce balance and structure. This can be drunk on its own, but is best with some food. We had with some grilled portobella mushrooms and some risotto.

External Reviews for Raymond St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon District Collection
Aromas of summer fruits picked right at the peak of flavor coupled with the pleasant aromas of black tea, cranberries and a warm graham cracker crust permeate the glass with every swirl. In mouth, the wine has a pleasingly silky entry and weight as the taste of fresh strawberry jam fills your palate, transitioning to a well-structured, lengthy finish.
Opaque purple/ruby. The nose opens with black cherry, plum and currant aromas joined by underlying notes of cedar and spice. A pleasant, full-bodied red, this showcases concentrated dark fruit firmly in the forefront framed by vanilla and cedar ele... John Perry.

Wine Enthusiast ReviewOh what a nice young Cabernet this is. With lots of new French oak, it shows a beautifully balanced, elegant opulence. The fruit is impeccably ripe, all blackberries and cassis, and the all-important tannins are softly ripe and sweet. You could open it now, but it should develop additional bottle complexity after 2007.Wine Tasting NotesThis wine opens with rich black fruit aromas of blackberry and black cherry followed by anise, cassis, currant, dried cranberry and touches of oak and vanilla. Red cherry, raspberry, plum and cassis flavors throughout with notes of black licorice, cocoa, toasted oak and black pepper in the long, smooth finish. Well structured and complex with nicely integrated tannins.
