Winemaker's Notes:

#30 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010

The second vintage of this blend, it represents our version of a "winemaker's wine." Having spent so much time working in Bordeaux and visiting Burgundy, the Loire and the Rhone, I'm deeply steeped in French winemaking tradition, including their orientation toward the growing site or region. Thus, all our wines are either vineyard designates or regional blends. While Annum is an appellation wine, it is the one blend we make each year that allows us to select from a range of vineyards to make the best blend possible that vintage. This second release is 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot. Vineyards chosen include the J. Davies Vineyard on the Schramsberg Estate (56%), the Larkmead Vineyard (36%), and Somerston Vineyard (8%).

About Ramey:

Following winemaking posts at Rudd, Dominus, Chalk Hill and Matanzas Creek, David Ramey and his wife, Carla began their own label in 1996 - a Chardonnay from the Hyde Vineyard. Now situated in downtown Healdsburg, Ramey Wine Cellars draws on exceptional vineyards in both Napa and Sonoma to fashion classically-styled Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay using traditional old world techniques.
