Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Ramnista tops off this issue's vertical. It was aged for 18 months in French oak (different vineyard blocks are aged separately for the first 12 months, then blended for the last six months into the same barrels). This is the new vintage, not yet arrived, but scheduled sometime in the spring of 2017. In general, it looks like a good year in the region and so, too, here. Big and full bodied, this has plenty of fruit to balance out the tannins, but it is no surprise that it is drying on the finish and unevolved. Surprisingly lush just now, this wine is likely to close up as its power takes over. It looks lovely just now, but prepare to cellar it, not drink it.
