Review

The 2016 Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley) is an attractive wine to drink now and over the next handful of years. Bright red berry fruit, floral notes, earthiness and gamy notes all fill out in this fleshy, racy Pinot Noir. The inclusion of 25% whole clusters adds brightness, but the 2016 is done in the juicy, giving style that is a Ramey signature with Pinot.

Dark, brooding black fruit and strong tannin greet a rich, interwoven palate of full-bodied ripeness and cola in this lush red wine. The grapes are sourced from the warmer reaches of the appellation and show deep concentration lifted by moderate acidity.
