This wine is sourced from multiple sites across the appellation, including Rochioli, Mill Station and Laughlin Road, all of the vineyards relatively cool. Light and mineral-driven, the wine presents as crisp and subtle in oak, allowing for exotic fruit and floral elements to show and a richness to develop slowly toward the finish.
Ramey 2014 Chardonnay Russian River has an understated nose of ripe apples and apricots with a creamy/yeasty undercurrent. The medium-bodied palate provides nice richness, with plenty of pure stone fruit and citrusy flavors supported by refreshing acidity, finishing long and creamy.
Deep, intense and layered, with tropical fruit, pineapple, citrus and green apple flavors, shaded by cedary oak, which adds texture and imparts a touch of rawness on the aftertaste. Drink now through 2021. 12,270 cases made.
