External Reviews for Ramey Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard Carneros Napa
Exotic aromas of apple, pineapple, coconut, iodine and baking spices. Powerful and penetrating, with a dusty impression of extract; still some CO2 to be absorbed. This, too, offers superb inner-palate energy and precision and an even bigger finish than the Hyde wine, with real palate-staining persistence.
The 2006 Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard exhibits aromas of green apples, quince, white currants, and honeyed citrus in an impressive, medium to full-bodied style with beautiful fruit, a subtle dosage of wood, and a heady finish. Drink it over the next several years.
The 2002 Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard reveals beautiful fruit, an alluring minerality, crisp lemon oil, orange blossom, and honeysuckle characteristics, full body, and plenty of concentration.
A blockbuster California Chardonnay in all senses of the word, the 2001 Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard may have been vinified and raised like a Burgundy, but this is all-American stuff. Loads of tropical fruit, lemon and orange liqueur characteristics, huge body, and big, yeasty brioche notes all make for a stunningly proportioned, dazzling example of full-flavored, pedal-to-the-metal Chardonnay. There are 1,050 cases of this head-spinning sex pot. Drink it over the next several years. Get on the bandwagon as David Ramey is on top of his game.
One of California's best winemakers, David Ramey's Hudson Vineyard Chardonnays go from strength to strength year after year.
Creamy-textured, with a mix of rich, smoky pear, fig, nectarine, honeysuckle and apricot, finishing with intensity and concentration and a pretty floral highlight. Drink now through 2007.
Greenish yellow. Seductively perfumed aromas of Meyer lemon, green apple and quince, with strong notes of wet stone, iodine and white pepper. Positively Burgundian on the palate, offering deep, chewy citrus and orchard fruit flavors and iodine and dried flower nuances. The long finish strongly echoes the smoky mineral and floral notes.
