Robert Parker - Wine Advocate
The single-vineyard wines include the 2013 Chardonnay Woolsey Road Vineyard, which offers up plenty of tangerine oil, apple blossom, white citrus and wet pebbles in a medium to full-bodied, light, attractive, clean style. Drink now-2020.
Antonio Galloni - Vinous
The 2013 Chardonnay Woolsey Road Vineyard is one of the most expressive and complete wines in David Ramey's range. Apricot, peach, smoke, crushed rocks and dried herbs all blossom in the glass. The Woolsey captures a gorgeous stylistic middle ground that balances richness with nuance. The 2013 finishes with great texture that points to a brilliant future. Woolsey Road was planted by the Martinelli family for David Ramey from clonal material taken from Platt.
NVWE Notes: Fanning-out with the firm, zesty-minerally character of fine White Burgundy, the nose of this classy effort lays a veneer of lemon-lime zest and pineapple core over a core of crisp Fuji apple, tempered by toasty vanilla and baking spice scents. It is more immediately expressive on the palate, where baked apple, golden fig, white peach, lemon sorbet and passion fruit flavors marry with more savory vanilla, toasted nut and mineral notes. The finish is lingering and high-toned, although the impression is still a youthful one. Built for classy fish and fowl dishes, it should grow ever better over the next three years or so. 580 cases produced.
