Our online feature this week is the Raymond Family Classic Cabernet Sauvignon (California, United States) – $17.99 (regularly $21.99).

In honor of International Women’s Day on March 8, 2023, our weekly special this week features a wine made by Stephanie Putnam, the Director of Winemaking at Raymond Vineyards, where she oversees all aspects of winemaking for this iconic Napa Valley winery .

Stephanie spent eight years as winemaker at Far Niente Winery, where she contemporized their house style. Prior to that, she was part of the team at Hess Collection, where she began as a cellar worker and rapidly progressed to winemaker. While there she also worked with the winery’s South American partners. Her wines have won acclaim, including recognition in the Wine Spectator’s Top 100, Wine Enthusiast’s Top 100, and being named The Wine News Cabernet of the Year.

Raymond Vineyards has over 300 acres of estate vineyards in the Napa Valley, in 3 locations (St. Helena, Rutherford and Jameson Canyon). Each parcel is matched to varietals which perform well in that particular climate and soil type. In addition, the winery maintains long term growing contracts with over 15 Napa Valley growers, allowing the winery to take advantage of the micro-climates and sub-appellations within the Napa Valley.

The Raymond Classic Cabernet Sauvignon is of a deep ruby colour with a nose of florals, dark berries – cassis, blackberry, herbal and soft vanilla aromas. On the palate, it is medium bodied with cassis, vanilla and spice flavours with ripe supportive tannins. Pair with a grilled steak.
