Ramey Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

External Review:

The least aspirational of the winery s several Cabernets but still a wine of some ambition Ramey s basic Napa Valley bottling is nicely focused solidly fruited and far more than a simple sibling to its pricier partners. It seasons its full measure of ripe currants with a bit of root-beer-like sweetness and cocoa and its supple beginnings give way to firmness as rigid tannins arrive. It proves a bit frontal just yet and is ultimately not quite as accessible as it first seems and while those who are not deterred by its young Cabernet "grip" might enjoy it with a rare steak soon we plan on wait for three or four years.

David Ramey started his career in wine with little more than a degree in enology and a dream. Then, after nearly two decades of creating benchmark wines for such California wineries as Matanzas Creek, Chalk Hill, Dominus and Rudd, David Ramey and his wife Carla founded Ramey Wine Cellars in 1996. “Owning one’s own winery is the dream of every winemaker,” David says, looking back on the path that led him to build his own. It took time, planning and a profound understanding of how best to bring together all the elements—from the grapes, to the winery materials, and a top-notch team of professionals—to make it all work. Ramey Wine Cellars is located off the town square in the quaint Sonoma County town of Healdsburg. It is a sleek, efficient, no-frills work space dedicated exclusively to making the highest quality wines possible. “In our own winery, we’re not distracted, as I had been, by the ongoing and changing needs of an employer,” David notes. “At Ramey Wine Cellars, we try to foster a team environment where everybody feels empowered to contribute and make a difference in both winery operations and the wine itself. My hope is to create an atmosphere of great opportunity for all.” The winery produces authentic, hand-crafted wines made in an Old World tradition--coupled with New World innovation and California terroir. Owned exclusively by David and his wife Carla, grapes are sourced from vineyards with which David has worked for many years. Their next project will be to purchase land and develop their own vineyards. Consistently rated among the best wines in California, the winery remains committed to Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Syrah as its primary varietals. Winery tastings are available by appointment. Tasting Room We are open for tastings by appointment Monday through Saturday (excluding holidays). We offer a hosted tasting in a seated environment so that you can relax and truly appreciate the wines. Read less

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is a big, dramatic wine endowed with tremendous richness and power. A large-scaled, dramatic wine, the 2009 Cabernet sweeps across the palate with generous, deeply resonant fruit. This is shaping up to be another beauty fr... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Vintage: 2008 03/15/2012

The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon impresses for its layers of dark, plush fruit. Hints of cassis, grilled herbs, tobacco and cedar develop in the glass, adding further complexity and depth. Firm tannins frame the long finish. This is a very classic and bea... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2008 Ramey Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 750ml
