Raymond Vineyard & Cellar

Reserve Selection Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Delectable Wine
9.2

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Selection lifts out of the glass with tons of sheer intensity. Inky dark red cherry, mocha, cedar, spice and licorice are pushed front and center. This mid-weight, supple Cabernet has so much to offer. It’s a terrific introduction to the Raymond range. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, January 2021)

Caterwaul

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Delectable Wine
9.3

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is not just gorgeous, it is also one of the best values readers will come across. Ripe, juicy and expressive, the 2018 once again hits all the right notes. Inky dark fruit, smoke, licorice, spice and sweet floral accents all race out of the glass. Readers will have a very hard time finding a better wine for the money. The balance of various appellations works so well here. The Caterwaul Napa Valley bottling might just be the finest wine in the market in its price range. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, January 2021)

Blueprint Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Delectable Wine
9.3

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Blueprint is fabulous. Inky dark fruit, chocolate, new leather, spice, lavender and menthol fill out the layers beautifully. In the glass, the 2018 is rich and generous, yet it also possesses terrific freshness and plenty of verve. It is a superb wine in its price range, or any price range, for that matter.

The character of the rice is magical. Smooth, almost sweet and not a single harsh edge.

I threw in the towel on dry January last week ... last two years I had been able to pull it off

Ridge Vineyards

Coast Range Zinfandel Blend 2001

The first bottle right after receiving this lot felt a little overblown and pruny. So glad I waited a while before opening a second one. This is now well put together and putting across the notes I expect out of old vine field blend California coast; chocolate, coffee, cool climate lift right on top of intensity. — 22 days ago

Double Diamond (Schrader)

Mayacamas Range Estate Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2003

Santa tried to drink this to but I out foxed him! Remember to lock your cellar! Santa drinks! Very fruit forward, chewy and earthy. In a blind tasting i would have guessed Walla Walla. — a month ago
