DetailsWE 92 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - Editor's Choice! - "Having spent only 12 months in barrel, this vintage of the producer’s Claret is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon with 34% Merlot, 4% Malbec, 3% Syrah, 2% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. It opens in exotic floral and spice, with a juicy midpalate around soft, rounded tannins and smoothly integrated oak. It provides extraordinary value for the quality. "
According to Antonio Galloni - "Dark red cherries, plums, smoke and licorice jump from the glass in the 2013 Claret. A bit darker and richer than normal in this vintage, the 2013 Claret is shaping up to be an overachiever. I tasted the 2013 from tank just prior to bottling. In 2013, the Cabernet Sauvignon is down to about 55% of the blend, while Merlot is higher than normal, a decision that I imagine was made to give the wine its customary early appeal in a vintage in which Bordeaux-styled wines are quite imposing."Wine Enthusiast, 2015 Winemaker of the Year - David Ramey, Ramey Wine Cellars
