Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Raymond, Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, 1982

RRP £228

One of the oldest wines in the tasting, it still has a fine bright hue in the glass and an intense, perfumed nose. There’s cassis there but also button mushrooms, and the palate is ripe and juicy with a creamy weight to it. A very fine wine, though it’s certainly moving now into the (albeit venerable) twilight of its life. A canny sommelier would be thinking about selling the few cases he or she has left.
