The Best Winemaker in America
I know, I know…I’m talking about David Ramey again? Some of you may be tired of me touting David Ramey as the best wimemaker in America, but I am just consistently impressed with his wines. But it’s not just me! Ramey continues to make Top 100 lists year after year after year.
It’s hard to know where to begin when it comes to David Ramey and his wines, as there are so many highlights, but there is one common theme: quality.
When David started Ramey Wine Cellars back in 1996, he introduced a California style that was richer, more lush and silky smooth than previously known. As a result, he created a benchmark style now emulated by many.
As a holiday treat, I would like to offer 20% off any combination of 3 bottles or more on Ramey wines Friday-Sunday.

Meet the Wines of Ramey
We have a handful of Ramey wines in store, but I am only highlighting two in this email. The special applies to any of Ramey’s wines.
Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
It is truly tough to dispute the claim of David Ramey as the best winemaker in America after one glass of his Cab!
An extraordinary Cabernet that offers bright red fruit, tons of complexity and a silky, yet powerful finish. The Ramey Cabernet balances the harmony of traditional Bordeaux winemaking techniques with voluptuous California character.
And it’s one of Dougy’s favorite wines in the store…always knew he had good taste!
Chardonnay, Platt Vineyard
California Chardonnay doesn’t get any better than this!
When I want to sinfully indulge this is a go-to wine! It exhibits abundant amounts of citrus and roasted nuts along with a layered mouthfeel, great acidity, medium body and impressive purity. It represents a hypothetical blend of top white Burgundy and Sonoma Chardonnay (Sonoma is considered one of the premium sources for Chardonnay fruit).
Pinot Noir, Russian River
Ramey strikes again!
David’s Russian River Pinot Noir is a stunning balance between rich, unctuous styles and leaner, coastal styles. It’s impressively elegant and delicious.
Chardonnay, Ritchie Vineyard
The Ritchie Vineyard was planted in 1972, making it one of the oldest Chardonnay vines in Northern California. The result? A Chardonnay with amazing vibrancy and purity of flavor, brimming with juicy, lemon-scented green apple and a long, persistent finish.
