External Reviews for Ramey Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard Carneros Napa
One of California's best winemakers, David Ramey's Hudson Vineyard Chardonnays go from strength to strength year after year.
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.
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.
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.
Green-tinged gold. Ripe orange, pear and honeydew on the nose, with iodine and anise adding complexity. Deep and creamy, offering concentrated orchard and pit fruit flavors and bracing minerality. Becomes spicier on the long, vibrant finish. This is strikingly pure and persistent.
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.
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.
