WTN: 1999 Raymond Napa Valley

Recommended Posts

1999 Raymond Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve - Very dark reddish-black color. Nose of dark fruit, licorice, and spicy oak. Flavors of dark fruit, stewed cherry, coffee, licorice, and oak. A well-balanced wine. The tannins really quite fine-grained. After trying previous vintages of this wine, I am surprised at how approachable it is and how soft the tannins are. The finish is of medium length, showing off that nice sweet dark fruit. Not a terribly distinctive wine by any means, but it was tasty enough, and it is drinking well at the moment. Purchased a couple of years ago for $27.

All the best,
