2016 Ramey Chardonnay Westside Farms - USA, California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley (11/21/2019)
"Huh, smells like a Ramey."

Yup.

Hay, light spice, pear and apple fruit turn more tropical as the wine warms up from refrigerator temperature. Mouth filling but not heavy, as the core of acidity keeps it fresh. Not so big and rich as Hyde can sometimes be, it's in the middle between Hyde and the appellation bottlings. Nice sweet spot for the wine. This was my first time ever tasting this particular cuvée, so not going to hazard an overall judgement on the "worthiness" of the wine, just say that I like it, and will happily drink my other bottle in a year or two, to see what happens.
