Ramey makes some of the best California Cabs that are mass distributed. That is not to say they are inexpensive but they are made in sufficient qualtities to be generally available. This one has a light golden color. The nose is pretty with peaches, cream and slight lemon curd. Not as much oak as many Ramey wines. On the palate, this is full bodied with a creamy texture. The peaches and lemon come thru along with a bit of yeastiness. Good finish. This is a robust Chardonnay but has plenty of energy to work with or without food. It will match up well with salads and heartier seafood
