Ramseyer Vineyards Vintage Five 2009, Yakima Valley
Supple, rich and expressive, this is vibrant with acidity against ripe cherry and raspberry fruit, with earthy notes and an undertone of mint. Shows depth and carry on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec. Best from 2014 through 2020. 320 cases made.
Compass Wines “2012 Washington Wine of the Year”
Ramseyer Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
In just a few short years, Ramseyer has gone from unknown commodity to up and coming superstar. John’s latest release is a textbook example of Yakima Cabernet that just keeps getting better and better. When folks call from out of state and want a representative of Washington Cab, this is one of the first bottles we grab. Bravo!
