I could drink this every day. Nice mature Napa Cabernet. Slightly raisiny, plenty of leafy goodness. Hint of vegetal components. Just fantastic for the money.

Medium ruby color, a bit of bricking at the rims. Nose of sweet plum cake, roasted figs, caramel apple, mixed in with some underbrush, wet leaves, pipe tobacco and vanilla. Tart pomegranate and red currant fruit on the palate, with lots of wet leaves, moss and earth accents. Some pipe tobacco and campfire soot as well. Mocha-toast shows itself but doesn’t overwhelm. The fruit tastes a bit baked on the finish, dried out a bit as well. It came together well in the decanter, smoothed out and became more balance. Not the best aged Napa Cab, but good stuff and interesting.

7 Cabernets and Rack of Lamb. Was nice wine that featured faded fruit, probably past its prime 4 years ago, too much tannin on the finish. Their wines normally go about 7 years and this one proved it to me. My #5.

Pop and pour. Beautiful nose, but simpler on the palate. Layers of chocolate and black cherry. Old World nose/New World palate. The bright acidity and medium body keep it fresh and lively.

1998 Raymond Vineyard & Cellar Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve

Bought this 10-ish years ago. Maybe it was even a gift, but either way, I have had it for a long time. Mediocre producer, bad year, but wine has developed into a very good to excellent wine. Popped, decanted and poured and followed for three hours. Kept getting better with the air. When I opened it, I thought it was going to end up as an 85 point OK wine, nothing special but not bad. However, as it got a chance to gain some air, it gradually developed some very nice dark red fruits with nice dark cherry. There is still a bit of unresolved tannin, even after 16 years. Color is dark with no bricking. Wood referenced in other CT reviews is almost all gone, with just a tiny bit of a mix of cedar and oak. Finish is soft but long. Nose is subdued.

I opened this with the expectation that it would either be a pleasant surprise or I would write a note that started with "what possessed me to buy this?" The result is door number one.

Unfortunately opened and poured into plastic cups, which greatly detracted from the ability to take a proper reading. This wine seemed very mature and neutral, both olfactory and taste-wise. Notes of plum and black cherry. Decent structure, resolved tannins - enjoyable without any noticeable flaws.

This bottle was mellow, smooth, and a bit sweet, tasting mildly of blackberry and black cherry. I wouldn't say that it was terribly complex, and had next to no spice.

$14. There was a bit of sediment / gunk near the top of the bottle upon opening. Pours a brown / burgundy appearance. Slight smoke, toasted oak, coconut nose. Some fruit and black currants in the flavor. Not a ton of tannins though there is some woody notes. Some acidity on the finish. A bit of chocolate. Kind of boring but drinkable.

Consumed the last one of 6, not much improvement, and I'd certainly drink up.
It still had ample fruit and the oak was getting sweeter tasting.

RRV and Napa Visit; 7/7/2014-8/30/2014 (Napa and Sonoma): St Helena, Rutherford, and Oakville fruit. 100% Cabernet. Lots of chocolate in the aromas, violet with red and black fruit. Barrel spice and lots of lift.

Slightly upper middle class cab.

Interesting touch of citrus on the palate, add a hint of raw asparagus and cranberries. Makes me think it would pair well with fajitas or salad with marinated beef strips.

too young, but still a great effort... nose of rasberry, allspice, red licorice... medium-full bodied which surprised me..long great lingering finish, again of rasberry, red fruit, vanilla... a bit bitter on palate or i would score higher.. should get better/smoother with a little more age...very enjoyable

A smooth, sweet wine, maybe a tad thicker than others. Not very complex, but not jammy either.

Two years since last tasted, splash decanted, loads of dark fruit, blackberry, black currant,, some coffee notes, good dose of oak on the finish.. Smooth, concentrated, rich, more forward than I would have thought!
