If there’s one problem with the Davis Bynum wines it’s the way they get filed in New Jersey. It’s convoluted but stay with me while I peel the curtain back… Wine wholesalers are allowed to file with the state to have a one day sale on a single product. Completely insane but it is what it is.
So once again for one day only (24 HOURS) – we get special access from the winery to sell one of their wines at a glorious price. Today’s deal is flat out ridiculous. I mean really truly. Today, we’ve been given a single-vineyard Russian River Valley Chardonnay made by one of the best American Chardonnay producers ever, David Ramey. That would be great on its own, but I’m not done.
This is his River West Vineyard Chardonnay. Ready for the roll call? It has 91-points and a Wine & Spirits ‘Best Buy’, a James Suckling 92-point score and he called it, “delicate, structured and long.” And last but not least, a rave 93-point review from Wine Enthusiast who deemed the wine, “rich in style yet underpinned by elegance”.

93 Points, Wine Enthusiast
This is a tangy, well-integrated and balanced wine, rich in style yet underpinned by elegance. Green apple, Meyer lemon and wet stone accent a weighty structure, with toasted oak, nutmeg and a slight hint of crème brûlée lingering on the close
92 Points, James Suckling
Aromas of lemon peel, fresh herbs and white peaches. Medium-bodied with good weight and texture. Delicate, but structured and long. Very bright acidity. Drink or hold.
91 Points (Best Buy), Wine & Spirits
Tense and gingery, this wine’s pear-like fruit has a rainwater clarity. It’s as smooth as river stones and as brisk as the water coursing over them. A youthful 2018 that’s perfect for grilled trout.
