This medium-bodied, elegant wine then fills the palate with flavors of raspberry, black currant, and spice. With a velvety mouth-feel and a smooth finish, this wine is extremely food friendly and made to pair with the finest cuisine in the world.

"Raymond Vineyards has returned to the fold as one of the benchmark, classic estates in all of Napa." – Robert M Parker, Jr. The Bad Boy of Burgundy. The man who favors silk smoking jackets, Baccarat crystal, surrealist art, and things both shaken and stirred. He’s had three sets of tires slashed in Beaune for having the audacity to bottle Grand Cru under screwcap. He married Gina Gallo, and they now live in Robert Mondavi's former Napa Valley home high up on Wappo Hill in Yountville. His parties include painted acrobats suspended from the rafters, and John Legend on the piano. He is Jean-Charles Boisset, the most interesting man in the wine business. Boisset brings a passion for greatness and a unique Gallic flair to his winery projects in California, especially Raymond Vineyards. We were especially impressed by the following wine, which illustrates Raymond's wild renaissance in quality and, thanks to Jean-Charles, a sultry, far-out image makeover that must be seen to be believed. It's definitely worth a stop on your next visit to the valley.
