  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

    Pale yellow-gold color. Spicy, leesy aromas of apple, pear, lemon, honey and game, plus a whiff of oak char. Broad and full, with honey and vanillin oak flavors nicely framed by ripe balancing acidity. Offers good intensity and length.

    The medium straw/green-hued 2000 Chardonnay Carneros (1,600 cases) exhibits aromas of white flowers and citrus in addition to medium body, excellent purity, abundant fruit, and admirable balance, with nicely integrated acidity and oak.

  • 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.
