Ramey Cab. Sauv. Jericho Canyon 2005
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
Ripe, over ripe and then extracted some more. Finishes very oaky, then green and then bitter. Over the top for my palate.
External Reviews for Ramey Cab. Sauv. Jericho Canyon
David Ramey has created an expressive, rich Cabernet from the Larkmead vineyard, considered by many to be Napa's answer to Pauillac. This wine is packed with crème de cassis flavors and velvet tannins.
Offers creamy oak in the aroma and texture, with subtle dried currant, herb and hints of cedar and spice, showing depth and richness on the finish, where the currant and blueberry flavors gain complexity. Drink now through 2012. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
The final vintage for this cuvee, the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Jericho Canyon offers a Graves-like personality of scorched earth, chocolate, charcoal, and black currants as well as a sumptuous, full-bodied palate, and a layered, multi-dimensional finish. Drink this remarkable Cabernet Sauvignon over the next two decades.
This may not be especially ageable because itandrsquo;s so soft and forward. But for current drinking and a few years out, it rewards for a wealth of flavor and richness. The wine has the blackberry marmalade, raspberry tart, milk chocolate truffle, cappuccino and new oaky flavors that many very ripe California reds show, but its pedigree is in the tannic structure. Best now through 2010.
This wine starts with a dense, rich core of fleshy, mocha-laced currant, fresh earth, plum and blackberry fruit, then it firms up with rich, chewy tannins, but the flavors push through on the finish, revealing added facets of depth and concentration. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2007 through 2012.
Revealing exceptional intensity, along with a flamboyant, open-knit personality, the 2002 Jericho Canyon Proprietary Red (two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon and one-third Merlot, and a tiny dollop of Cabernet Franc) exhibits a deep purple color along with the sweet fruit, and juicy, smoky bacon fat notes intermixed with creosote, crème de cassis, scorched earth, and toasty oak. This voluptuously-textured 2002 can be drunk now of cellared for 15+ years.
Deep red-ruby. Superripe aromas of roasted currant and tobacco. Lush and seamless on the palate but considerably less fat and more refined than the Diamond Mountain offering. The black fruit and mineral flavors are sharply focused if distinctly less evolved than those of the Diamond Mountain. Finishes with substantial palate-saturating tannins and excellent structure.
