About 20 years ago, David Ramey was part of a select group of winemakers who became tired of "laboratory" or "squeaky clean" wines devoid of character. He wanted to bring terroir back into wines from California, and his success was the benefit of the consumer! David Ramey became known throughout the wine world as a winemaker associated with stellar quality, and he brought his expertise to brands such as Chalk Hill, Matanzas Creek, Dominus Estate, Rudd Estate, as well as his own brand. While the Ramey Chardonnays have been on the "center stage" for a few years, this release shows that his Cabernets can hang with some of the best in the Napa Valley...and at a MUCH lower price than others that sell for exponentially more!

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS - "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. 7,085 cases produced."

JEB DUNNUCK 92 POINTS - "I was able to taste two Cabernets from Ramey. Starting with the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley, which comes from Napa, it offers textbook, slightly old-school Cabernet notes of blackcurrants, black cherries, sweet tobacco, cedar, and chocolate. It doesn't pull any punches on the palate and is ripe, medium to full-bodied, and beautifully textured, with a dense mid-palate, yet it brings good freshness, notable structure, and a great finish. It will keep for 15 years or more."

ANTONIO GALLONI 91 POINTS - "The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) is a soft, fruity wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. Sweet dried cherry, tobacco, spice, mint and leather give this mid-weight Cabernet lovely aromatic nuance to match its mid-weight personality."
