California Cab & Chardonnays from
NJ Native & Top Cali Winemaker Dave Ramey
*You Will Not Want to Miss this Great Offer!*

Dave Ramey is known as one of California's most gifted and quality-driven winemakers, and he has also been a long-time friend of the Bottle Shop. Being a NJ native prompted him to first visit us about 20 years ago, and we have been enthusiastic, loyal fans of his wines ever since. We will never forget a visit to Rudd Winery in the early 2000's where Ramey was the winemaker at the time and was also making his own label at the newly constructed, state of the art winery- what was uncanny is that his own label took up half the space in the cellars. We believe he parted ways with Rudd soon after our visit- not sure they appreciated the runaway success of his own label. Ramey makes rich, concentrated wines and specializes in Cabernet and Chardonnay. The first wine below is a small batch Cabernet from the great 2015 vintage. It isn't that easy at this point to find 2015's Cab on the market, so snatch this one up at $49.99 and enjoy over the next 7-9 years. Next up, Dave's Russian River Chardonnay reminds us of why Chalk Hill's Chards were so good in the 1980's-he made them! His own 'everyday' Chard here is one of the best, most delicious in the field. And perhaps the biggest gem of all today, is Ramey's 'Rochioli' Chardonnay. Rated 99 points and the #15 Wine of the Year in Wine Enthusiast, this manages to be big and bold yet fresh and racy all at the same time - an extraordinary feat!  

Cheers! the Murray family

'David Ramey has long had one of the most impressive resumes for any California winemaker. He worked at Chateau Petrus in Bordeaux and for Christian Moueix at Dominus in Napa. He also consulted and worked for a number of high end Napa Valley wineries including Matanzas Creek and Chalk Hill. Of course, his first love is Ramey Wine Cellars and he has built an extensive empire of Chardonnays and Cabernets.'  Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Medium to full-bodied, it floods the mouth with plush flavor layers wrapped in chocolate-textured, pixelated tannins and great freshness to counter, finishing long and luscious.

Ramey Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2018

wa 91+

RATED 91+ WINE ADVOCATE : 'The 2018 Chardonnay Russian River Valley is youthfully shy, hinting at stone, apricot and white blossoms. In the mouth, it's medium-bodied, uber silky and minerally with great freshness and a long finish.' David Ramey started his career in wine with an enology degree and a dream. Over the course of two decades, he made benchmark wines for other wineries and then in 1996, founded Ramey Wine Cellars. "Owning one's own winery is the dream of every winemaker," David says.

Ramey Rochioli Vineyard Chardonnay 2017

we 99 jd 96 wa 93 v 93

RATED 99 WINE ENTHUSIAST / 96 JEB DUNNUCK : 'From an awesome vineyard in the Russian River, the 2017 Chardonnay Rochioli Vineyard is one of the richer, more powerful Chardonnays in the lineup. Medium gold-colored, with notes of sautéed orchard fruits, brioche, honeysuckle, and lemon curd, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, good acidity, and a mouthfilling texture that keeps you coming back. It actually gains freshness and vibrancy with time in the glass and is another age-worthy, brilliant Chardonnay from Ramey I'd be happy to have in the cellar.' JD
