Ramey Wine Cellars Tasting - Co-hosted by Barrel Select, we were pleased to have Ramey Wine Cellars at the Reserve for this sit down tutored tasting.
The tasting was conducted by Mr. David Ramey himself. “The Master’s Touch was how Wine Spectator appropriately titled an article on David Ramey. He is highly esteemed and “universally respected among both critics and the winemaking community” and has equal mastery of red and white varietals.
David produces neoclassical wines, combining California’s richness with balance, harmony, and elegance. He is not tied down to any one convention.
“If you have ever been blown away by wine from Rudd, Dominus, Chalk Hill, Matanzas Creek or Simi, then you may be a David Ramsey fan without knowing it.”
