The name refers to the fact that Krisi Raymond is a fifth generation winemaker. Her Great-Grandfather was Jacob Beringer (yes that Beringer)! Her father is Roy Raymond (yes that Raymond). Krisi obviously grew up around wine production and has a real passion for producing high quality, varietally correct wines at extraordinary values. Only 620 cases of this 100% Cabernet were produced from grapes sourced mostly in St. Helena and Rutherford.
