2005 Raymond Rutherford – Beautifully Structured and Balanced Cabernet

1 Jan

Raymond Rutherford Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2005  ~$35 US

About the Winery

Raymond Napa Valley wines reflect a family dedication to excellence and five generations of Napa Valley winemaking. Viticulture and winemaking experience, along with premium fruit from vineyards  selected for climate and soil type, are combined to produce consistently superb wines.

Tasting Notes

This dense, dark Cabernet opens with the fresh aromas of blueberries and linen, with a twist of the more opulent overtones of roasted meats, cigars, and the forest floor. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and powerful as minerality and earthiness intermingle with the sweetness of elderberry and currants. This wine is evenly structured and well balanced with a beautifully extended finish.
