  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 95

    The 2010 Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard is a bit brighter and more focused than the Hudson. There is a sense of energy and focus in the 2010 that is remarkable. Sweet floral and spiced notes resonate on the finish. Saline overtones add to an impression of briskness and raw energy, especially on the finish. This is another fabulous showing. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020.

    Light, bright gold. Complex, high-pitched aromas of Meyer lemon, nectarine and honeysuckle, with a stony accent building with air. Precise, intense and palate-staining, showing impressive energy and lift to its citrus and orchard fruit flavors. Elegant, nuanced and seamless with lively acidity adding bite to a long, focused finish.

    Pure and refreshing, with vibrant, spicy citrus, green apple and Asian pear flavors, gaining richness and ending with delicacy.

  • 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.
