Winemaker's Notes:

This third release is composed of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon from the J. Davies Vineyard on Diamond Mountain and 5% Petit Verdot from our Pedregal Vineyard in Oakville. While we try not to use too much new oak, the density of this wine allowed it to spend 26 months in all new barrels, after which it was bottled without filtration. As with all of our wines, this was fermented with native yeasts and bacteria.

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.
