Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91(+?)

($85) Full medium ruby. Superripe nose is distinctly porty yet bright. Then lush and deep in the mouth, with explosive, superripe flavors of blackberry, black raspberry, licorice and bitter chocolate. Boasts terrific sweetness and depth but distinctly bound-up today, even a bit medicinal. Finishes with powerful but thoroughly ripe tannins. Not now as harmonious as it seemed from barrel, but this may well merit a higher score with bottle aging.

The top wine, the Jericho Canyon Proprietary Red, emerges from a vineyard northeast of Calistoga. The inky/purple-colored 2001 Jericho Canyon Proprietary Red offers up a sumptuous perfume of licorice, espresso roast, graphite, blackberries, and currants. Unctuously-textured, with tremendous purity, high tannin, and a long finish, it reminds me of the old style vintages of Mayacamas Cabernet Sauvignon from the late sixties to the mid-seventies.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

A Bordeaux grape expression from Napa, ripe, complex and concentrated, a transitional mix of youth and maturity. Firm, structured and ending with a deep, persistent finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. 2001 California Cabernet blind retrospective (June 2011). Drink now through 2016. 1,700 cases made.

Site Blog: The Wine Forum Big boy and big boned evident tannins. It went in and out of what seemed awkward phases tonight, almost shy at some points (after decant) so it seemed a little out of balance. The nose is subtle, but very complex. You really have to try and coax it out. A little more restrained than what I was expecting. Still delicious overall, just not outstanding. Not bringing it! Real score is more like a 90, but I know this will come around. Decanted 1 hour and then drank over 4 hours. Color: Dark red core with red edges. A little cloudy from sediment. Nose: Blackberry, minerals and flowers, some soy sauce, burnt orange peel, mocha dust, crushed all spice, subtle oak influence. Palate: Tannins are really pronounced. Integration is there but is struggling to stay balanced. Alcohol is a bit high at 14.7%. Don't love the texture, though great acidity. Blackberry, slate like minerality with crushed blackberry, really surprising for a Napa Cabernet to be so mineral driven. Bordeaux like, a cross between St. Julien and St. Estephe. I am befuddled as the previous tasting notes here are great, well written and typical of what I'd expect from this wine and this wine maker's style. Maybe just a dumb phase for this one but pretty delicate tonight. Just different than I was expecting. Good none the less.

Very nice young wine. Not super overpowering on the nose but lots of dark fruit and tannin. Could go another 10 years without a problem

About This Producer


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.
