Ramey 2013 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
100% Cabernet Sauvignon | Alc: 14.5% – Big and Bold
Napa Valley, California

Winemaker’s notes:
Our ninth vintage of this appellation Cabernet is blended from a combination of hillside and valley floor vineyards. Our style combines the harmony produced by traditional Bordelaise winemaking techniques with the voluptuousness gained from California’s weather, especially in this perfect vintage

Critical Acclaim:
“Deep garnet-purple, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is scented of crème de cassis, ripe plums and pencil shavings with hints of sautéed herbs and beef drippings. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the palate with concentrated black fruit and earth flavors, framed by grainy tannins and finishing with an herbal lift.” 92 Pts – Wine Advocate

“Sites from throughout the valley contribute to the lovely layering of this accessible wine, softly structured and classically inspired in its dried herb and distinct purity of cassis. Delicate despite its ripeness and power, it leaves a smoky hint of sweet tobacco on the finish.” 93 Pts – Wine Enthusiast

“Very ripe and plummy, verging on jammy. Full body, fruit-forward and spicy. Flavorful finish.” 90 Pts – James Suckling
