6 reviews for Ramey Chardonnay Russian River Valley 2018

  1. WS

    Fresh-cut apple and green pear flavors show savory richness. Minerally midpalate, with notes of lemongrass on the crunchy finish. Drink now through 2024.

  2. WE

    An incredible showcase for the appellation, this combines grapes from the producer’s estate Westside Farms with Dutton, Woolsey Road and Rochioli Allen, among others. Together it is broadly floral, earthy and richly integrated, with depth and complexity, the acidity vibrantly fresh.

  3. WA

    The 2018 Chardonnay Russian River Valley has aromas of citrus peel, quince and almonds with a unique, super-spicy undercurrent. The medium-bodied palate offers intense, ripe fruits in a seamless, silky package, and it finishes long and lush.

  4. JD

    Readers who like classic, impeccably made, authentic California Chardonnay should jump on the 2018 Chardonnay Russian River Valley as it doesn’t shy away from its California fruit yet is balanced, fresh, and lengthy. Stone fruits, honeyed toast, baking spice, and hints of tropical flowers emerge from the glass, and this medium-bodied, textured 2018 will drink well for at least 7-8 years.

  5. WAS

    David Ramey blends this wine from a selection of five sites planted from 1978 to 2006—the biggest contribution from Westside Farms. He ferments the wine spontaneously in François Frères and Taransaud barrels (15 percent new) and the integration of that oak is impressive, allowing the wine’s coastal freshness to provide the dominant impression. Scents of honeysuckle and ginger brighten the wine, while the leesiness adds complexity, with an iodine note and a lasting, intriguing tension.

  6. WIL

    The 2018 Ramey Russian River Valley Chardonnay offers an excellent ride on the palate and into its finish. TASTING NOTES: This wine brings the full force of Chardonnay charms. Enjoy its aromas and flavors of savory spices, ripe fruit, and a touch of oak with grilled chicken thighs in a wild mushroom sauce.
