Nice and engaging and fruit forward with a nice mouthfeel.
A good quality wine that shows what it is and where it's from. Smooth and elegant.
This Single Vineyard is easy drinking and good by itself or with food. Good for parties too.
A great wine to have all by itself, which is exactly what I did.

Decanted for 3 hours, for a dinner that didn’t play out, so stopped and stored overnight in a fridge. Took to sunset gathering next night and, wow, this was singing a magical Raveneau song. Medium gold, heavy in the glass. Killer nose. Notes of a cool sea breeze, sea shells, white stone, apricot and citrus, some tan spice and a dollop of honey. Really big and powerful impact in the mouth. Long finish. This juice used its long aeration to show its very best. Give it air if you drink now. Will likely hold in this position for a long time to come. — a month ago
Great, delicious as always. Ramey never fails to hit the spot. Dark red colors, medium bodied, plenty of earth and tobacco, a touch of ripe blackberry but certainly a lot of oak and vanilla.
The last remaining bit of sky right before sunset becomes night. — a month ago
Christmas shop spices and bright red fruit of raspberry, cherry, cranberry, and strawberry with hints of dried herbs like basil and bay leaf on the nose. Fresh and juicy mouthfeel with bright red fruits of cranberry and raspberry, oaky notes of warming cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove spices with soft tannins that linger nicely on a medium finish. Fun and balanced spiced fresh red blend that goes well with Italian and/or Mediterranean style dishes. — 2 months ago
Really wonderful. Golden sunset body, slight oxidation on the nose, with the shift of smoke. Not sure why this is sold as a white, since it’s merlot with at least some skin contact, but the slight tannin plays so well with the ox and the smoke and the sugar—a really killer wine with spicy fatty food, which, let’s be realistic, is often what’s on the plate. Will buy two more bc I can’t wait to see where these are in 2-4. — 2 months ago
Actually one of the really good tasting champagnes that isn’t too dry or sweet. Great combo of both. Recommended by guy at Cambridge Wine and Spirits. — a month ago
Wonderfully welcoming bouquet of candied cherries, licorice, firewood, and lemongrass.
Absolutely scrumptious. Headin’ back to Wine Therapy to clean them out. Therapy for my mouth.
Straight up juice juice. Like cherry pie and leathery goodness made a baby and walked through the forest during a golden hour sunset. Nonsensical and so good. — a month ago
