Ramey Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2006
91 points Josh Raynolds (IWC): (includes 11% merlot and 2% each of cabernet franc and petit verdot) Cherry and red berry aromas... dried rose, tobacco and fresh herbs. Juicy and intense, with gently sweet red and dark berry flavors and slow-mounting tannins. Becomes more floral with air and finishes with impressive clarity and persistence. (May/Jun 2009)
External Reviews for Ramey Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Opaque ruby. Red- and blackcurrant aromas, with suave floral, tobacco and spice character adding interest. Fleshy, liqueur-like dark berry flavors are soft and round, with no rough edges or obvious tannins. Turns slightly firmer on the long, velvety finish. Ramey told me that this has a pH of 4.0.
The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as sweet, tarry, black currant, chocolate, cedar, and wood smoke-like flavors, and decent acidity. Drink it over the next 10ndash;15 years.
