Ramey Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2016 Bottle
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley|
Wine EnthusiastThis is a great appellation wine, overdelivering on price with an opening touch of matchstick that evolves into a stony, high-toned expression of tangerine and blood orange. Within the fruit are savory notes of nutmeg, hazelnut and ginger that linger leisurely on the lengthy finish.
Jeb DunnuckThe 2016 Chardonnay Russian River Valley is a richer, medium-bodied Chardonnay that stays firmly in the style of the estate. Classy notes of caramelized citrus, honeysuckle, and brioche all emerge from this beautiful Russian River Chardonnay that has both freshness and richness. It’s already drinking nicely yet will certainly keep for 7-8 years.
Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Chardonnay Russian River Valley is fermented in barrel with bâtonnage, then aged in 20% new French oak for 12 months. The nose is very minerally, with aromas of petrichor, lemon pith, green melon and soft white blossom with sliced almond hints. Medium to full-bodied, it's citrusy in the mouth with tons of minerally sparks, lively tangy acidity and creamy, toasty nuances on the finish. 6,521 cases produced.
Wine SpectatorFocused and fresh, with dried, savory herbal notes accenting the fresh-cut apple, citrus and white berry flavors. Finishes with wet stone and spice details and sage cream accents. Drink now through 2023.
VinousThe 2016 Chardonnay (Russian River Valley) is another gracious, open-knit appellation-level Chardonnay from David Ramey. Pliant and inviting, it will drink well upon release. There is a brightness to the 2016 that is quite appealing.
