2016 Ramey Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, USA (750ml)
This wine vastly overdelivers on its price point—a rarity in its category and peers. Made from grapes throughout the appellation, the majority from St. Helena, it blends in small amounts of Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cab Franc. Turned earth, pungent tobacco leaf and currant define its savory, substantially structured elegance that offers room to age.
- Wine Enthusiast, 94 pts.
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon also contains 8% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec and 2% Cabernet Franc and was aged 28 months in 48% new French oak. Deep ruby in color, it has very pure, layered aromas of raspberry and cherry preserves with notes of cardamom, aniseed and rose petals. The full-bodied palate is intensely layered and perfumed, seamless and long. It's an elegant rendition of an appellation-wide Cabernet Sauvignon from what can be a rich, powerful vintage in Napa.
- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 93 pts.
This is a lively and engaging Cab, brimming with damson plum, red currant and bitter cherry fruit, liberally laced with sassafras, red tea and juniper accents. Fresh and open-knit through the finish.
