    August 28, 2021 - Decanted and enjoyed with a grilled ribeye and grilled vegetables. Seems hard to believe that’s been ten years since I last drank a bottle of this…David Ramey always makes a quality, cellar worthy wine. Lots of positive development while this has been “sitting”. Drinking well, but not yet at maturity: grainy tannins, blackberry liqueur, cassis, juicy black cherry, drying black plum, dark chocolate, and black stony earth. Structure is very evident leading me to believe this has still a ways to go. Can drink now, but this could improve over the next 3-5 years. Drink through 2026+.

    Oh, and to those who’ve had broken corks, I used a cork puller, but still had to “hand rotate” the final 1/2 inch to preclude the cork from breaking. Be careful with these corks….🙁🙁🙁

    December 31, 2020 - Waiting for it to open while lamenting another badly broken cork. Too many of these. Decanted and looking for a strainer to get rid of the cork.
    Will score later.

    February 20, 2020 - another broken cork, my wines are stored in a cellar with all the right conditions

    I like Ramey but will not buy anymore until they fix this problem

    February 11, 2020 - another busted cork, this happens a lot with the Ramey's I have been trying that are 10+ years old. I hope they fix this. I wine is not flawed but the cork floating adds more tannin than I like

    (RAMEY Cabernet Annum) Ramey Dear Friends, Once in a great while I come across a high-end Cabernet from Napa that is fastidiously produced, will please the collector and not cause a second mortgage - this is one of those occurrences. David Ramey is not new to the terroir circuit - he's been producing some of California's most accomplished and expressive red and white wine for years. Prices have remained within reason and (if my mom is any indication - which she undoubtedly is) Ramey's Chardonnay is a benchmark for the US. Unfortunately for my mom, today we focus on Cabernet - Ramey's other passion. Long-time fans of Ramey may not recognize this wine but it is (for all intensive purposes) at or above the level of the old Jericho Canyon bottling (which is no longer produced). I would call this their new flagship red wine and it is worthy of the title. With miniscule additions of Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Merlot (less than 4% total), this is really a pure Cabernet that gives evidence to Napa's long-standing dominance with the grape. If flashy and showy are your goal, this wine is not for you, but it is not exactly for Europhiles either. It is certainly large in scale, even colossal in its own way, but it has a sense of the Orient Express and the mysterious within the walls of its full-bodied house that set it apart. Think Darjeeling Limited meets Napa and you will be close. This is California kingship in a bottle and it will run circles around many entrants at twice the price or more. I would be interested (as would Josh Raynolds below) to see this up against something like 2009 Ducru Beaucaillou or 2005 LÄoville Poyferre 20 years from now. A top notch effort from David Ramey: This parcel has perfect provenance directly from the winery cellar: 2006 Ramey Cabernet Sauvignon "Annum" Thank you, Jon Rimmerman Garagiste Seattle, WA CA9280
