RAMEY CHARD AUCTION '16
RAMEY CHARDONNAY "SONOMA AUCTION BLOCK" RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY 2016
NVWE Notes: Creamy, spicy and distinctive, the nose of this gorgeous, youthful wine melds scents of tarte tatin, pineapple core, lemon blossom, white rose, honey, hazelnut nougat and flinty mineral notes into a racy Burgundian style. Those stylish elements are notably more intense on the palate, where the flavors have a penetrating clarity. In the lingering finish, the richness is elegantly tamed by citric-mineral influences to create a truly racy mouth-feel and wonderful food-compatability. It likely has four years of improvement ahead. This is a special charity "Auction Block" bottling, a 50/50 blend of fruit from the Kent Ritchie Vineyard and the Woolsey Road Vineyard. Only 10 cases produced.
