Winemaker's Notes:

Our fourth vintage from this small, outstanding vineyard on the lower slopes of the eastern Oakville hills. "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. Aging the 2007 on its fine lees has coated the tannins and smoothly integrated the wood, and we've left this vintage 24 months in completely new barrels—yet it's hard to find the oak. The Petit Verdot was harvested four 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.
