Ramey Wine Cellars
David Ramey is a prominent, veteran California winemaker who is known for his Chardonnays. He has been an innovator who led the charge over 30 years ago away from technically proficient squeaky clean wines towards natural winemaking methods.
The sources for Chardonnay have been impeccable incljuding Ritchie Vineyard, Hyde Vineyard, and Hudson Vineyard. In 2012, he released a Pinot Noir from the Platt Vineyard in the Sonoma Coast. A number of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignons and a Sonoma Coast Syrah round out the lineup.
The wines are sold through a mailing list with some retail distribution.

2012 Ramey Platt Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
14.5% alc., $74. Very limited, not offered for sale on website. · Moderately dark reddish purple color in the glass. The nose is flush with aromas of rose petal, forest floor, conifer and dried herbs. Full-bodied flavors of ripe black cherry and black raspberry with a savory herbal thread in the background. A bit daunting at present with a finish that has a good cut of acidity and length, but is dry and taut with overwhelmingly astringent tannins. Probably best to cellar this wine to see if the tannins ameliorate or match the wine with hearty protein dishes if opened now. Score: 88. Reviewed March 16, 2015 ARTICLE »
