Very balanced and silky with lovely blueberry and black currant character. Full body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Very drinkable now but better in 2018.
The generic 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Reserve comes from a mix of sites, ranging from Yountville in the south to Calistoga in the north, as well as some mountain vineyards, such as Atlas Peak. A blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc, it has a dense purple color and a beautiful nose of blue and black fruit, licorice, graphite and subtle toast. It spent 18 months in 100% new French oak and was bottled unfiltered. This beauty can be drunk now or cellared for another two decades or more. 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. (RP)
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is plump, juicy and forward. Dark red cherry, plum, mocha and spice abound in a generous, ripe Cabernet Sauvignon that delivers outstanding quality and value, especially considering the 22,000 case production. (AG)
