($36; about half of this wine comes from Hyde and Hudson fruit) Deeper yellow color. Rather exotic aromas of pineapple and clove. Then bright and minerally in the mouth; more dominated by its structure and less pliant today than the Russian River Valley bottling. But this boasts excellent flavor intensity and structure. Perhaps the best vintage yet for this wine.

About This Producer


Ramey Wine Cellars was founded in 1996 by husband and wife team David and Carla Ramey. David had previously made wine at such California wineries as Matanzas Creek, Chalk Hill, Dominus and Rudd. Located in Healdsburg, Ramey Wine Cellars prides itself on producing hand-crafted wines using a combination of Old World tradition and New World innovation. Ramey crafts Cabernet blends and Chardonnays sourced from fruit in the Napa and Sonoma Valleys. The Cabernets include those from Diamond Mountain District and Jericho Canyon Vineyard, as well as a Napa Valley Claret. The Chardonnays are both vineyard-designate and appellation, made in identical fashion so as to reflect their sense of place. The Chardonnays are whole-cluster pressed, fermented in Burgundian barrels with native yeast and bottled without filtration. In addition to their dedication to Cabernet and Chardonnay, Ramey has recently produced a Carneros Syrah and looks forward to purchasing vineyards of their own.
