"Ramey 2014 Chardonnay Russian River has an understated nose of ripe apples and apricots with a creamy/yeasty undercurrent. The medium-bodied palate provides nice richness, with plenty of pure stone fruit and citrusy flavors supported by refreshing acidity, finishing long and creamy." (WA)
"The 2014 Chardonnay (Russian River Valley) is rich, creamy and supple, with lovely textural richness and depth, especially at its level. Peach, apricot, dried flowers, vanillin and a touch of French oak give the wine its racy, supple personality. This is a gorgeous appellation level wine from David Ramey. " (VM)
