Ramey Chardonnay Russian River Valley 2010
Not yet reviewed; 2009 vintage rated 91 points by International Wine Cellar: Bright gold. Deeper, richer and more powerful than the Sonoma Coast bottling, offering aromas and flavors of poached pear, papaya, orange zest and smoky minerals. Juicy, palate-coating orchard fruit and floral flavors are lifted by juicy acidity and sharpened by a gingery nuance. Shows very good energy and clarity on the tangy, focused, very long finish.
External Reviews for Ramey Chardonnay Russian River Valley
A rich, enveloping wine, the 2010 Chardonnay Russian River Valley caresses the palate with layers of bright, focused fruit. This is an especially saline, intense vintage of the Russian River bottling. Crushed rocks, lime and white flowers flow through to the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2013–2020.
Nicely elegant and understated offering delicate pear spice and green apple scents that are pure and persistent. Drink now through 2018. JL Wine Spectator.
