i-winereview on David Ramey
Ramey Wine Cellars
David Ramey has one of California’s most impressive winemaker résumés and is a member of the small tribe of scholar-winemakers who systematically research and experiment how to make better wine.
Of course, impressive résumés don’t guarantee impressive wines. However, as our tastings over the years show, in David’s case the wines reflect the results of his careful, systematic research and experimentation carried out over the past three decades.
David draws fruit from vineyards across Napa and Sonoma and makes wines that are expressive of their terroir. Reviewed here are the Sonoma wines in David’s outstanding portfolio; we tasted them with him for this report.
