Ramey Wine Cellars

Jericho Canyon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2002

2002 vintage in January 2021. This is in a great place. Fully mature with big red fruit and balancing earth. Fruit is fully mature and developed some additional characteristics but still very hedonistic for a wine this age. At a peak/plateau with stuffing to keep going but why wait? Do it! β€” 10 days ago

Nice wine for a virtual party. SWMBO thought she detected a bit of frizzante, but not enough to affect our overall opinion. β€” 16 days ago

Jericho Canyon Red Blend 1998

Done in a Bordeaux register with great cabernet and merlot with density and freshness same time. You cant tell its age by the robe. Tobacco, leather, blackcurrant, medium bodied and complex. No rush. β€” 2 months ago

Jack Mcginley Vineyard Syrah 2016

The wine has an excellent balance of fruit and beautiful tannins. The wine has a silky mouth feel throughout. This wine was purchased from the tasting room. The significance of that is they were not pouring a 2019 vintage or a young unready vintage. β€” 14 days ago

Hells Canyon

Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Hells Canyon makes one of the best, no let me correct, it makes the best Cab Sauv in Idaho from Idaho grown grapes on its estate vineyard. I have search, tried, compared now for nearly 20 years, there is truly no other Idaho winery who can make such consistently complex, well structured Cabernet Sauvignon wines from Idaho grapes. Hells Canyon winery has a prefect southern exposed vineyard looking down on the Snake River. I am guessing but the grapes much be about 35 year old now and the same winemaker all those years. The 2016 is full bodied with strong under notes of vanilla. More new country style with the strong dark fruit integrated with bold tannins . We had a third of a bottle left-over for the next day and it had settled down in a balanced, expressive, complex wine. This convinced me to cellar it away and try it in 10 years. It might become the the best ever! Before this one we tried the 1997, 20 years older. It was exquisite. β€” 24 days ago
