Vibrant acidity supports the concentrated finish-cut white fruit and tangerine flavors, with floral accents. Flinty and spicy notes show on the rich and driven finish. Drink now through 2023.

Review

Ramey's 2016 Chardonnay Westside Farms Vineyard is punchy and vibrant in the glass. Bright acids give notable tension and energy that perks up the citrus and white floral character. I would give the 2016 another year or so in bottle, as it is a bit tightly wound today. This refined, complex Russian River Chardonnay is long on class and personality.
