Winemaker Notes

An eleven-acre vineyard planted in 1998, this is the first harvest from this site. Located off Diamond Mountain Road above Diamond Creek Vineyard, the soil is gravelly clay-loam and the vine rows run up and down the hillside rather than being terraced. Being from young vines, this vintage was improved by blending in 15% Merlot from the Jericho Canyon Vineyard.

Blend: 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 12% Petite Verdot, 7% Cabernet Franc.

Critical Acclaim

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The stunning 2001 Diamond Mountain District Young Vines reveals aromas and flavors of scorched earth, creosote, black currants, chocolate, and espresso presented in a long, opulent, full-bodied, moderately tannic format.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Offering both a plump generosity of ripe berry, plum and black licorice and a firm structure. Fine depth and focus, gaining velocity and picking up a minerally edge. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.

Ramey Winery Video

David Ramey is among a distinguished group of pioneering American vintners who revolutionized modern-day winemaking and elevated California to the forefront of the international wine community. Hailed as “Professor Chardonnay” by Wine Spectator, David’s groundbreaking work with indigenous yeasts, sur lies aging and malolactic and barrel fermentation yielded a new California Chardonnay style that was richer, more lush and silky smooth. Ramey Wine Cellars crafts exceptional expressions of Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Pinot Noir from top vineyards in Sonoma and Napa.

After earning a graduate degree at UC Davis, with his thesis on how aromas evolve in wine, David Ramey pursued a hands-on education in Old World winemaking traditions. He worked at Chateau Pétrus and would later apply these time-honored methods to California’s premier vineyards. In California, David led winemaking for Matanzas Creek, Chalk Hill, Dominus Estate and Rudd Estate. In 1996, David and his wife Carla founded Ramey Wine Cellars with the vision of crafting classically styled, elegant and balanced wines that age beautifully.

Still exclusively owned by the Rameys, the next generation is now working in the family business. Claire Ramey works with her father in pre-production and Alan Ramey leads marketing efforts. Tastings are offered by appointment in Healdsburg, California.
