Ramey Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 90-92ag 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"Ramey's 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon jumps from the glass with layers of flavor and pure intensity. Expressive floral and spice notes add lift, but there is no shortage of vintage 2012 raciness and intensity here. Firm yet well-integrated tannins support layers of creamy, highly expressive fruit. This is shaping up to be a very pretty wine from David Ramey...90-92" AG 02/14 "The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa is composed of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot and the rest Malbec and Petit Verdot. It reveals deeper, richer cassis fruit than the 2011 or 2010, a sweet, velvety mouthfeel, and a medium to full-bodied texture. Drink it over the next 10-12 years...91-93." WA 12/13

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
