Steve Tanzer 90 points - The buttery-styled 2011 Chardonnay Russian River exhibits more tropical fruit (mango and pineapple) and hints of hazelnut and smoky oak. Medium-bodied and crisp, it is slightly more evolved than the Sonoma Coast and thus should be consumed over the next 1-2 years.

RAMEY VINEYARDS 2011 RAMEY CHARDONNAY RUSSIAN RIVER
"Vivid gold. More exotic than the Sonoma Coast bottling, displaying scents of passion fruit, poached pear, honey and almond paste. Then surprisingly taut and focused on the palate, displaying fresh tangerine and tropical fruit flavors and a bracing kick of bitter quinine. Plays richness off of vivacity smoothly and finishes supple, spicy and very long, with an echo of ripe pear." Josh Raynolds Steve Tanzer's International Wine Cellar 90 points
