Winemaker Notes

Our fifth vintage from this small, outstanding vineyard on the lower slopes of the eastern Oakville hills. "Pedregal" means a rocky place 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, so this is the first vintage we've directed farming ourselves (we converted to organic). Aging the 2008 on its fine lees has coated the tannins and smoothly integrated the wood, and we left this vintage 26 months in completely new barrels—yet it's hard to find the oak. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot (16%) were harvested in two passes two days apart and co-fermented. As with all of our wines, this was fermented with native yeasts and bacteria and bottled without filtration.

Jeb Dunnuck

Even better, the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Pedregal Vineyard offers an incredible density and depth of fruit as well as a huge nose of blackcurrants, licorice, chocolate, and lead pencil notes. With good acidity, full body, and building tannin, it’s another blockbuster, classic wine from this estate that readers should be happy to have in their cellar. Drink bottles over the coming 15 years or more.

WS 93
Wine Spectator
A rich, potent, tightly wound and focused effort, with tiers of mineral, currrant, dried berry, sage, black licorice and toasty herb flavors. This unfolds slowly, opening gradually to more layers and dimensions. Best from 2013 through 2022.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Deep ruby, the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Pedregal Vineyard, a blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon and 16% Petit Verdot, opens with baked plum, blackcurrant, fried sage, graphite, milk chocolate, leather and nori with a spicy core and licorice notions. It's medium-bodied and silky, the fruits segueing to tertiary layers, with firm, gently chalky tannins and good freshness, finishing very long and chocolaty. 601 cases were made.

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.
