  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    (70% cabernet sauvignon, 24% merlot, 2% malbec, 2% syrah, 1% cabernet franc and 1% petit verdot): Vivid ruby. Expressive aromas of dark berry preserves, candied flowers, pipe tobacco and white pepper. Fleshy and open-knit, offering sweet blackcurrant and cherry compote flavors lifted and sharpened by juicy acidity. Supple tannins build slowly on the finish, which repeats the berry and tobacco notes.

    What was once a really good wine continues its decline. Very rustic and acidic. Lack depth and balance.

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.
