2015 Raymond "Reserve Selection" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1349621 95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark High octane style but full of purpose and energy. The nose rings the varietal bell loud and clear with an impressive palate chock-full of contrasting notes of blackcurrant cordial, chocolate, earth and toffee, the finish lengthened by precisely balanced tannins. A lovely food wine. Inner quote mark

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Deep and dense, well-centered on rich dark berry, licorice, herb, dill, cedar and road tar flavors. Though firmly tannic, this also has a measure of finesse and grace. (JL) Inner quote mark (6/2018)

91 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Reserve is a terrific value that should be snatched up by readers. Giving up lots of classic Cabernet cassis and currant fruit, plenty of tobacco and earth, medium to full-bodied richness, and a great mid-palate, drink this impressive, balanced, classically style Cabernet anytime over the coming decade. Inner quote mark (12/2017)

91 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A juicy and fruity wine with brambleberry and chocolate. Some hazelnut. Medium to full body. Silky texture. Drink now or hold. Inner quote mark (12/2017)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Reserve has vague cassis and earthy scents. With chewy tannins, nice texture and freshness to match the fruit, it's not bad at all. (LPB) Inner quote mark (10/2017)

K&L Notes

Cab is still king, especially when it can hit a reasonable price point—and at under $40, you would be hard-pressed to find one that delivers more “bang for the buck.” Like its owner, Jean-Charles Boisset, this wine is filled with life. Tons of rich, layered fruit with hints of vanilla spice, mocha, red currant and black cherry fruit coat the palate. (Clyde Beffa, K&L)

100% Napa on the nose: heady kirsch like aromas are forward yet balanced, with something subtly savory and very true to form for the grape variety. On the palate the flavors are mouth filling, generous, and, just what you want in a $50 Napa Cab - at under $30.

Raymond's Reserve Selection Cab has long been a staple here at K&L. It delivers those big, bold, powerful qualities that put Napa Cab on the map and does it at a price that looks like it's from 1990! I mean how many 2015 vintage, 95 point Napa Cabs can you find for under $30!? Packed with deep, lush valley floor fruit, blackcurrant, ripe plum, bittersweet chocolate and toasted oak. The texture on the palate is velvety smooth and soft (just like the wine's plush label)! There's lots of power and concentration packed into this bottle but it doesn't feel forced or manipulated. Just a bold crowd pleasing style from some great Napa Valley vineyards and plenty of wine making know how. Don't miss this one at a very sharp price!

It's becoming increasingly difficult to find a quality Cab from Napa under $30, especially one at the Reserve level, but Raymond has managed to make an incredible one. Napa Cab is never short of fruit, but Raymond manages to keep it restrained and elegant and brings some great freshness alongside. At one of the lowest prices in the country, this one is sure to get snatched up fast.
