Winemaker's Notes:

Our third vintage from this small, outstanding vineyard on the lower slopes of the eastern Oakville hills. (This link connects you with a map of the Oakville Appellation with Pedregal's location). "Pedregal" indicates stones in Spanish, and that is certainly a distinguishing feature of the site. During 2008 we agreed to a long-term lease of this vineyard which gives us complete control even through any change in ownership. Our first step will be to take the vineyard organic starting with the 2009 growing season. The 2006 vintage produced a particularly small crop, about half the size of 2005. The Petit Verdot is harvested four or five days after the Cabernet and co-fermented.

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.
