7. Ramey Claret

David Ramey is one of California’s legendary winemakers, responsible for a myriad of success stories including his own. His Ramey wines are sought after, particularly the single vineyard Cabernets and Chardonnays, which leaves some of his wine overlooked, like the Claret blend.

A Cabernet-based wine, Claret sees some Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot and a bit of Syrah. The name may be a touch misleading, as this really is a Cab, but it does indeed drink more like a blend with softness and spice accenting the rich berry fruit. This is a wine that celebrates its exuberance, quietly.

    Any list that leaves off Ray Krause from Westbrrok Wine Farm is incomplete. His Fait Accompli is one of California's crown jewels. You need to find that and be as stunned as I have been - with each new release.

    Yes, I saw what you did here Gregory - no complaints from me. I'd say well done!

    Some price points would have been nice. I love the Ramey Claret. It is my "go to" wine.
