    The 2010 Claret is an excellent introduction to the vintage. Sweet floral aromatics meld into nuanced dark fruit in this vibrant, chiseled wine. Although the 2010 will be approachable in a few years, it also has more than enough fruit and pure structure to continue to develop nicely for a number of years. There is a centeredness and pure poise to the 2010 that is compelling. This is a gorgeous entry-level offering from David Ramey. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

    (made from 90% cabernet sauvignon, 8% syrah and 2% petit verdot; the fruit was sourced from nine different vineyards): Opaque ruby. Youthful and very primary right now (it was bottled just a few weeks before my visit), offering intense aromas and flavors of dark berries and cherry pit. Refreshingly bitter and well-focused, finishing with strong cut and very good persistence.

    Not as full bodied as earlier vintages, but still a very good wine for the price.

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.
