K&L Notes

Winemaker's notes: "Our tenth vintage of this appellation Cabernet is blended from a combination of hillside and valley floor vineyards. Our style combines the harmony produced by traditional Bordelaise winemaking techniques with the voluptuousness gained from California’s weather, especially in this perfect vintage. The wine rested sur lies to incorporate the oak so that the 18 months spent in 52% new barrels (three-year air dried French, 50% and American, 2%) is barely noticeable. Due to this vintage’s supple tannins, we left this wine in barrel for only 18 months before we bottled it unfiltered."

    If I had to choose my favorite steak wine right now, I would have to say it is Ramey's Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Soft, ripe, and packed with silky tannins, the Ramey delivers on so many levels and at a very fair price point, considering all the fruit is Napa fruit. David Ramey is a fantastic winemaker, and this bottle showcases his talents.

    I attended a seminar hosted by ​David and Carla Ramey a few months ago. It was an eye-opening talk about wine and the process of making it and he really inspired me to revisit everything I thought I knew about winemaking in California. David's engaging demeanor and sincere approach to his craft is clearly reflected in this bottle. Complex and filled with personality, rich yet elegant, this is exquisitely balanced and will cellar well for many years. ​

    Another stellar release from this Napa Valley stalwart; Ramey's 2014 Napa Cabernet is yet again an immaculate rendition of what makes this valley so special for growing Cabernet. Packed with deep, brooding, smokey dark fruit; plum, cassis, dried herbs, graphite, embers and cedar shavings. Full bodied but dry and nicely structured around well defined tannins. Nice purity of fruit with a nod back to a time of more classically styled wines; it shows a lovely combination of ripe fruit and generous texture without becoming jammy or over the top. At our special hidden price this is a Napa Valley classic you don't want to miss!
    Top Value!
