Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is an excellent choice for readers who want to drink a Ramey wine without waiting the decade or so it takes most of his wines to truly open up. Dark red berries, savory herbs, mint and licorice all jump from the glass. A large-scaled, voluptuous wine, the 2009 is juicy, expressive and wonderfully resonant. Layers of fruit continue to build to the rich, enveloping finish. The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is quite a mouthful! Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029.

Opaque purple. Dark berries, cherry pit and chocolate on the nose, with licorice and black cardamon nuances adding complexity. Sappy, expansive blackcurrant and cherry flavors show very good depth, with a peppery quality providing lift. Fine-grained tannins add grip to the sweet, subtly floral finish. This suave wine drinks very well right now.

Consistently very good year after year. Dark berries, currants and a touch of oak. Smooth tannins.

Big berry punch with fine tannins and nice finesse. Delicate rather than the big bomb cab I've had from a few other 09s I've tried. I'm rating this a 91 because while very good, it didn't rival past vintages from them. I'll try another bottle in a few years. This would pair nicely with goat or game.

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.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon


Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
