Andrew’s FIRED UP On Ramey
Based on the most recent Wine Advocate and remaining stocks at the supplier I scooped as much as I could of these delicious Chardonnay's. The price/quality ratio is one of the finest in the market from California...HECK, for mostly anywhere in the world!
"…Once again, I tasted an amazing range of wines with David Ramey. The Chardonnays capture a beautiful middle ground of ripe, California fruit but treated to a long, Burgundy-inspired elevage that relies on natural yeasts and no filtration, among other choices, to bring out the personality of each of the sites Ramey works with. To me, the Ramey Chardonnays have a Chassagne-like richness that is quite appealing, yet they remain laid back in style by California standards...In my mind, Ramey is one of the top wineries in the United States. Readers who aren't familiar with these wines owe it to themselves to check them out…" Antonio Galloni – Wine Advocate April 2013

Ramey Russian River Chardonnay 2010 (92WA) - $27.99
"A rich, enveloping wine, the 2010 Chardonnay Russian River Valley caresses the palate with layers of bright, focused fruit. This is an especially saline, intense vintage of the Russian River bottling. Crushed rocks, lime and white flowers flow through to the finish...92." WA 4/13.
