Ramsay is essentially a second label of Kent Rasmussen Winery. True to form, the Ramsay label shows consistent quality at a good price point.

The Ramsay 2000 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Lot #3 is ruby red and fades to rose. The clear vivid color is attired with aromas of menthol, blackberry and a hint of cashew, all wrapped with a spicy pizzazz.

In the mouth, the flavors follow through. The tannins are flat to dusty leaving a fine to drying astringency. The alcohol feels a bit thin in this lean body, but has firm consistency. The wine is nearly balanced but a bit more fruit would smooth it out nicely. With its medium finish, this Cabernet Sauvignon is ready to drink. No need to store it, so drink it now.
