Product Overview

The 2016 Ramey Claret is the winery's soft, easy-drinking Cabernet blend that is a good introduction to the vintage, and while it will improve over the course of three to eight years, it is not a wine intended for long-term cellaring.

Varietal Compositon: 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 12% Malbec, 8% Syrah, 2% Petit Verdot
Appellation: Napa Valley AVA
Aging: 12 months sur lie, French and American oak barrels, 13% new

92 Points, "Editors' Choice" - Wine Enthusiast
"This blends a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon with 26% Merlot, 12% Malbec, 8% Syrah and 2% Petit Verdot. Together, they interweave into a cohesive whole of clove, black pepper and meaty intensity and integrated oak. Soft and round on the palate, it pleases at an unbelievable price." -VB, 4/1/19

91 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2016 Claret is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 12% Malbec, 8% Syrah and 2% Petit Verdot. Medium to deep ruby-purple, it offers aromas of bay leaf, sage brush, cardamom, anise and clove with mint chocolate, underbrush, blackberries and blackcurrants. It's medium to full-bodied, rounded and easygoing in the mouth, with gentle, grainy tannins and great freshness to lift the finish. It would be all too easy to glug a bottle of this “luncheon Cab,” as David Ramey calls it. 4,927 cases produced." -EB, 9/12/19
