Ramey Napa Valley 2013 Claret, $34.99-$44.99, 91 points, poured a cloudy orange/red trending a soft grape-purple toward the broad clear rim and glass bowl of some sheeting.
Aromatic cedar, blueberry, loam notes, and black fruit were excellent.
The medium-plus body managed good acidity, silky sweet tannin, and delicious flavors which mirrored the aromas with hints of mint and licorice.
Finished well on the trailing palate, easy spice notes, and a balanced 14.5% alcohol.
Varietals were 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 4% 3% Syrah. Malbec, 2% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot.
Paired perfectly with my spiced rib-lamb chops.
