Our fourth vintage from this small, outstanding vineyard on the lower slopes of the eastern Oakville hills. "Pedregal" indicates stones in Spanish, and that is certainly a distinguishing feature of the site. During 2008 we agreed to a long-term lease of this vineyard which gives us complete control even through any change in ownership. Aging the 2007 on its fine lees has coated the tannins and smoothly integrated the wood, and we've left this vintage 24 months in completely new barrels-yet it's hard to find the oak. The Petit Verdot was harvested four days after the Cabernet and co-fermented.

Wine AdvocateRamey-s sensational 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Pedregal is a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon and 18% Petit Verdot. Notions of blueberry pie, charcoal, camphor, blackberry, cassis, and smoky oak are followed by a wine with sizeable tannins as well as structure. The extravagant fruit, richness, and intensity result in a remarkable, young Cabernet Sauvignon from one of Napa-s finest areas, the Oakville Corridor. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2035. (97+)

Wine SpectatorRipe and powerful, rich and chewy, with a dense core of loamy earth, caraway, dried currant, savory herb and mineral notes. Full-bodied, intense, chunky and deep, with a rich, persistent finish. Best from 2011 through 2017. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 1,450 cases made.
