  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    ($36) Full medium yellow with a green tinge. Very ripe aromas of pear, orange, honey and nuts, plus a lively suggestion of greener fruits. The sweetest and thickest of these three appellation bottlings, with exotic flavors of orange oil and spice. Chewy and long. An impressive wine considering that the vines are very young.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 91

    Fresh, ripe and vibrant, with vivid citrus, lemon peel, ripe pear and apple and lively acidity that keeps the flavors lively and mouthwatering. Light toasty oak adds another dimension and the texture is smooth and polished.

    The stunning 2003 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast is a 700-case blend offering notes of tropical fruits, lemon oil, and crushed rocks. Layered, rich, full-bodied, it is one of my favorites of the appellation Chardonnays produced by David Ramey.

  • 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.
