In early June 2010, Winemaker Stephanie Putnam and Proprietor Jean-Charles Boisset hosted the inaugural blending series at Raymond with seven influential sommeliers. A short bio of each of these sommeliers is included in a distinctive and memorable booklet that serves as the back label. Together, the sommeliers crafted a unique Cabernet Sauvignon, blended from the finest quality grapes in Napa, Sonoma and Lake Counties into the 2008 Raymond Sommelier Selection. The Sommelier Selection is an exclusive on-premise offering from an iconic Napa winery and a small cadre of the country’s most prestigious sommeliers, and an ideal addition to any by-the-glass wine list. Sommeliers: Nicole Burke, Joshua Haberman, Anani Lawson, Haley Guild Moore, Amy Currens, Michael Jordan, Kenneth Luciano.
