About Ramey Wine Cellars

($60) Bright, green-tinged gold. Intensely perfumed bouquet of orange peel, lemon curd and a hint of toasty lees, along with a strong mineral underpinning. Opulent, palate-staining citrus and orchard fruit flavors display noteworthy power but don't come off heavy; in fact, this is pretty lithe. Finishes youthfully vibrant and long, with strong notes of pear skin, bitter orange and spices. This wine and the other vineyard-designated chardonnays spent 19 months on their lees.
