Another cold Boston winter is settling in, and our hearts long for big red wines once again. Starting with the basics, we’re thinking a simple and lovable California Cabernet Sauvignon a good place to look.
Raymond Vineyards has been a pioneering producer in Napa Valley since the 70s. The “R Collection” is a selection of California appellation wines (so not their top-tier Napa Valley stuff), but when you have an iconic producer behind entry-level wines they tend have pretty impressive substance and depth. This Cab is a great example.
2013 Raymond “R Collection” Cabernet Sauvignon – California ($11.99) is built around a core of fresh fruitiness – cherry, black plum, and blackberry – with delicious notes of herbs and spice that balance everything nicely. Paired with a rich, silky texture and soft, long finish, this has quickly become one of our staff favorites for serving a crowd.
Drink this wine because:
– It’s rich, red, and perfect for winter.
– It’s made by a great producer of California Cabernet.
– This friendly style of wine serves a crowd with varied tastes.
Drink up and enjoy your everyday glass!
