Review

Yet another vital and very deeply filled Chardonnay that marks one more success for Ramey in 2012, this deep, but somewhat tightly drawn wine marries a good bit of vibrant, slightly juicy young fruit with very well-measured oak and complexing accents of stony spice. It, too, is wonderfully energetic and layered, and it possesses remarkable length with more than enough structure and depth to make a few years of waiting a wise course to take.
