Winemaker's Notes:

This year's bottling comes entirely from B-block, planted in 2001 to a Wente selection from the Hyde Vineyard, so the vines were ten years old this vintage and further developing their maturity. Hudson Vineyard wines tend to a more muscular, masculine character—broad-shouldered, if you will.

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.
