Notes From The Winemaker:

Our seventh vintage from this small, outstanding vineyard on the lower slopes of the eastern Oakville hills.  “Pedregal” means a rocky place in Spanish, and that is certainly a distinguishing feature of the site.  During 2008 we agreed to a long-term lease of this vineyard which gives us complete control even through any change in ownership, so this is the third vintage we’ve directed farming ourselves (we converted to organic).


Ratings & Reviews



97 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Pedregal Vineyard is once again majestic. All the elements are simply in the right place. A dazzling wine, the 2010 captivates all the senses with its extraordinary nuance and polish. Dark red berries, crushed flowers, licorice and a hint of French oak are some of the notes that take shape in the glass, but like so many wines in this vintage, the Pedregal is mostly about textural elegance and brilliance, two qualities that come through in spades. This is a drop-dead gorgeous wine from David Ramey. Readers will need to be patient, but those who can wait will be treated to an extraordinary wine. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030." - Antonio Galloni (Apr 2013)

95 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar:
"Inky purple.  Sexy, oak-spiced aromas of black and blue fruit liqueur, pipe tobacco and sandalwood, with a suave floral nuance gaining power with air.  Broad and sweet but impressively balanced, presenting vibrant cassis and bitter cherry flavors and hints of rose pastille and cola.  Finishes with outstanding clarity and persistence, leaving floral and spicecake notes behind." - Josh Raynolds (May/Jun '13)
