managing vineyards and producing stellar 
Champagnes since 1776. Purchase a bottle of Louis Roederer’s Brut Premier at K&L Wine Merchants or Plumpjack Wine & Spirits (look for the gift box too). Or, if you’re dining out, order a glass at some of SF’s best restaurants including Quince, Hakkasan,
Alexander’s Steakhouse, and Seasons Bar & Lounge.

RAYMOND VINEYARDS, 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon

This wine scored 94 points from the magazine, which wrote that the cabernet is “so rich and ripe in fruit, you almost don’t notice that it’s also a complicated and layered wine in structure…An extraordinarily delicious wine.” Enjoy it this 
Valentine’s Day in Raymond’s 
Red Room for the most luxurious 
experience in wine country.
