"Boisset, whose creative abilities are off the charts, has a 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon that is put together by sommeliers and available only to restaurants at a rather exceptional value price. The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Sommelier Selection North Coast hails from Napa and Sonoma, as well as Lake County and is 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot aged about 15 months in French cooperage. It is a delicious, fruit-forward, lush style of wine befitting the vintage, with loads of black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, a touch of licorice and unsmoked cigar tobacco. The wine is meant to be savory, hedonistic and delicious from the time the cork is pulled – and it is. Drink it over the next decade." (WA)

Winery Notes:
Raymond Vineyard’s Sommelier Selection Cabernet Sauvignon was crafted by a group of influential sommeliers at the finest restaurants and inspired by the rich history of our world renowned winegrowing region. We used Cabernet grapes from three unique appellations, resulting in a fun and diverse wine made to enjoy. Napa Valley is the backbone of the blend, with its terroir providing the fullest expression of black fruits and integrated tannins; Sonoma County’s fog influence produces grapes that give the wine structure, balance and acidity; Lake County’s growing season is short, making for red, jammy wines that are easy to enjoy.
