With roots deep in the Napa Valley and award-winning wines known for beautiful balance, finesse and power, Raymond Vineyards was the perfect match.

The Cabernet Sauvignon is a mix of clones 4, 7, 29 and 169 from six distinct vineyards, located in St Helena, Yountville and our Rutherford. The Petit Verdot comes from a cool climate vineyard just south of the town of Napa. The grapes were individually berry sorted and went through extended maceration with the wines being on the skins from 36-59 days. It was then pressed and aged in a mix of Demptos, Baron, Leroi and Seguin Moreau French oak barrels.
