Winemaker Notes

This soft, easy-drinking Cabernet is a good introduction to the vintage, and while it will improve over the course of three to eight years, it is not a wine intended for long-term cellaring.

Blend: 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 4% Malbec, 2% Syrah, 2% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JD 92
Jeb Dunnuck
Moving to the reds, the 2015 Claret checks in as a blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 6% Syrah, and the rest Malbec and Petit Verdot all aged in 10-15% new French oak. Lots of blackcurrants, olive, peppery herbs, and cedar notes emerge from this medium-bodied, elegant Bordeaux blend that has loads to love. Drink it over the coming decade.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Composed of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 6% Syrah, 4% Malbec and 4% Petit Verdot, the medium garnet-purple colored 2015 Claret has a fantastic combination of red and black fruits—black raspberries, black plums, redcurrants and black cherries—with suggestions of cigar box and menthol. Medium to full-bodied, it has a firm, chewy structure and a great core of crunchy fruit, finishing long and earthy.

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.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
